How To Search Within a Website

To search within a website using google, use the site: command (no space after the colon, it is followed immediately by the web address). For example, to search within the Smithsonian website for banjo information, Google: banjo

Use a whole web address to search narrow, use less to search broad. For example:


searches only the Smithsonian Folkways Institute website


searches all Smithsonian institutes and museums


searches all education websites, including colleges, universities, schools etc.
