How to Search the GVGS Library From Your Personal Computer

sherlock.gif

To search for a book of interest, bring up one of the the GVGS library book lists (Title, Author, or Catalog #) at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~azgvgs/library.htm. Say you want to find all the book titles that have the word "Kentucky" in them. If your web browser is Internet Explorer, press CTRL+F and partway down the screen a box labeled "Find:" will appear. Type "Kentucky" (without the quotes) in the box and on the right you will see how many matches are on the library books web page and the first match will be highlighted in yellow. If there is more than one match, you can press the ENTER key to see the next one. You can also press the words "Previouis" or "Next" to the right of the "Find:" box to scroll back and forth through all the matches. You can search for anything this way such as a name, place or subject. Play around with it and you will probably find some books that you want to look at when the library is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM.

Other web browsers work the same way. When you press CTRL+F in Mozilla Firefox, the "Find:" box appears at the bottom of the screen. Otherwise it works the same as above except the matches are highlighted in green.

You can do the same thing with the CD collection at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~azgvgs/cd.htm.

What a handy way to browse in our library. See you there on Tuesday or Wednesday!
