Search in a table of contents
Once a table of contents appears in the right frame, click your mouse
inside this frame (click in the table of
contents); then use one
of the following to
bring up a search query box:

author's name to perform a

the paper you are looking for.
- Use Ctrl+f (press the "f" key while holding the "Ctrl" key).
- Use your mouse to open the menu in your web browser by clicking
on the "Edit" button, and then select "Find" in that menu.

When a paper title is found, you can click on the title of the paper to

What if a paper doesn't come up...
After you click on a title, if the paper doesn't come up in your
browser or you are not asked to save that paper to your computer,
the most common reasons are:
- You don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your
computer, or the Adobe Acrobat Reader is not installed as a
plug-in to your browser.
Papers are in the Portable Document Format (PDF). To view
these papers, you will need a software called "Adobe Acrobat
Reader" which is available for free from the
Adobe web site.
- Your browser's security setting doesn't allow Adobe Acrobat
Reader to run in your browser.
If you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader as a plug-in to your browser, but
after you click on a
title in the table of contents and nothing comes up in your browser,
it is most likely because your browser's security setting is
prohibiting your web browser to display the paper automatically.
In order to be able to allow Adobe Acrobat Reader to bring the paper
into your browser, you will need to set the "Security Setting" of your
browser to enable "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins". These are the
steps to do so:
- Go to the "Tools" menu in your browser (Internet Explore).
- Select "Internet Options".
- Click on "Security" tab.
- Click on "Internet" icon, and then click on the "Custom Level"
- Under "ActiveX control and plug-ins" find the item "Run ActiveX
controls and plug-ins" and click on the circle next to the word
- Click "Ok" all the way back to your browser.
Alternatively, you can put your cursor on the title of the paper you
are interested in, and then click on the right button of your mouse,
and a menu will popup, you can choose "Save target as...", you will be
asked to give a name and location of the paper and the paper will be
saved on your personal computer for you to access with Adobe Acrobat
Reader independently from your web browser.
