Tech Tips: Searching for Terms on a Web Page

keyboardIt can quickly become tedious when you are searching a text-heavy web page for a specific section of content. However, instead of scanning the entire content you can (in most browsers) press CTRL+F to create a “Find” box in the lower left-hand corner of your window. Any word or phrase you type into the box will be highlighted on the page (provided it is present.) This feature is particularly useful when searching HTML versions of database record (NCLive journal articles, for example) or when trying to find on the actual web page the “featured phrasing” from your Google search results.
