Here is a little search tip for those who are not
very savvy at using these boxes. If the reader hasn't thought about
the following, it can be quite helpful.
Let's say you are looking for a phrase, such as The Shining
Ones. Type in the phrase in the search box--with or without the quote
marks--and hit ENTER, or click the search button.
An array of search results will appear with the search phrase in
bold. Click on the one link you think could be closest to what you are looking
for, and that page will show up.
Here is where many people waste their time. On the page that
appears after they have clicked the link, they scroll up and down the page,
trying to find the search phrase. This can be quite irritating and time
consuming; especially if the paper is long.
Instead, as soon as the page opens, hit Ctrl+F, and a new
search box will appear. Type in The Shining Ones again, and hit ENTER. In
most browsers, you will see to the right of the search box how many hits you get
on that page. The first hit is normally now already highlighted in the text. If
that's not the result you're looking for, hit ENTER again, and the next hit will
be highlighted in the text, and so forth and so on. You can go through all the
hits this way, until you're back to the beginning. If nothing is what you
expected, hit the back button on your browser and it will take you back to the
array of pages containing the search phrase. Skim through them again and choose
another page that may include what you're looking for.
Hope this is helpful for some readers!
