    topic search results

  • If you select only a main topic, your results will be broad. For example, if you clicked Alternative Treatments and then clicked Search, your results would be limited to Alternative Treatments, which is a fairly general topic.

  • If you want more focused results, you may want to mark topics and subtopics. For example, if you clicked Alternative Treatments, marked the Acupressure and Acupuncture subtopic and then clicked Search, your results would include both Alternative Treatments and Alcohol, which is a more specific search.

  • You can also enter a search term in the Find field on this screen. For example, if you clicked Alternative Treatments, marked Acupressure and Acupuncture, and entered Liver in the Find field and then clicked Search, your results would include Alternative Treatments and Acupressure and Acupuncture and the search term Liver. This is a more specific search. (If you mark several subtopics, they are combined using "OR.")
