This is the second post in a three-part series spotlighting Regulatory Insight database features.
For this demonstration, we’re searching “FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.” After entering the search term, Regulatory Insight returns a list of matching results, with the most relevant documents located at the top of the list.
Results can be sorted by relevance (default), publication date, or recency. Additionally, the “Filter by” box, located in the left-hand column (shown below), can also be used to tailor the results.
Filtering by date will narrow the existing search results within the designated date range. Meanwhile, filtering is also available by document type or subject. Selecting “More options…” on either filter option results in a pop-up window (shown below).
There, the user can sort alphabetically or by result count each document type before selecting the document type to include or exclude in a filtered search. Clicking “Apply” will automatically generate a new search based on the filter selections (see below). To undo a filter, select the blue “X” icon located in the filter box.
Access to ProQuest’s Regulatory Insight database is available through the Texas Tech Law Library website under the Electronic Databases tab.
