While all websites will have some kind of navigation in place (menu, tabs, etc.) to help you find the information on their various pages, searching by keyword is almost always quicker.

Luckily, many websites will have a site search box - usually found in the upper right corner.   Here is an example of a site search box on just one site (click to view larger). 

site search

Type a keyword or two, and click the search button or icon.  The results that you see will be pages or documents on the site's domain (in our example: onlinelearningconsortium.org) that contained the word you searched for.

Note:  if you are using the APUS Library's site search, keep in mind that the subscription databases are outside of the library website's domain.  If you need to search for articles and books, use the big search box in the center of the page (not the site search in the upper right corner) or find your favorite database.
