ACME Search Tips

 Here's three tips to quickly find what you need:
• The Keyword & City Search
• Keyword, City & Company Indexes
• Category Links to over 250 Categories

1. KEYWORD + CITY SEARCH   
(the Keyword & City Search boxes are located at the top of every Directory page)
 

• Keep It Simple
Type whatever you're trying to find in the keyword search box. Describe what you need with as few terms as possible.
Next, hit Enter/Return or click the Search button, and The ACME will look for content that's relevant to your search.
Most of the time, you'll find what you're looking for with a basic query (the word or phrase you've entered). But, adding a City with the Keyword search will narrow the search results to resources in that general location.
