Optional: choose specific newspapers to include or exclude.

If you hover over the name of a newspaper, two boxes will appear next to each title. If you check the open boxes on the left side, that tells OneSearch to only include results from those titles.

If you check the red boxes with a line through them on the right side, that tells OneSearch to exclude results from those titles.

To search within a particular website, type site:[site URL] without spaces then add a single space before typing in your keywords.

For example:
