Knowledge Finder’s powerful search engine makes it easier than ever to search across our ever-expanding library of ULI content to find the information you need. Leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning, you can pinpoint the exact page in a report or moment in a webinar where your keyword or phrase appears, saving you hours of time.

How to leverage Knowledge Finder’s search (step by step):

  1. Perform a search by keyword or phrase. As you type, the search engine auto-suggests related terms or phrases, categorizing your search by the appropriate content type. You can distinguish between search terms and phrases by utilizing quotation marks (i.e. housing attainability vs. “housing attainability”).

  2. Browse your search results. By default, your search results are returned in order of relevancy, surfacing content titles that match your search and are most often selected by fellow members. From the main search page, you can further distill results to find what you are looking for.
