Currently in public beta, RefSeek is a web search engine for students and researchers that aims to make academic information easily accessible to everyone. RefSeek searches more than one billion documents, including web pages, books, encyclopedias, journals, and newspapers.

RefSeek's unique approach offers students comprehensive subject coverage without the information overload of a general search engine—increasing the visibility of academic information and compelling ideas that are often lost in a muddle of sponsored links and commercial results.

Search tips

Search for an Exact Phrase
You may search for an exact phrase by enclosing your query in quotes (e.g. "chapter 2").

Exclude a Word
To exclude a term from your search results, enter a minus sign before the word (e.g. apollo -greek -god).

Search a Specific Web Site
You may wish to view additional results from a specific Web site. To do this, simply click the "Search this Site" link located next to the initial result.

Force Inclusion of all Words
Common words like "what" or "it" may sometimes be ignored by RefSeek. To force the inclusion of a term in your query, enter a plus sign before the word (e.g. lewis +and clark).

Either/Or Queries
You may search for two or more queries simultaneously without forcing the inclusion of both in the results by entering OR in caps between each query (e.g. high school calculus OR geometry).

Document search help
