23 October 2014: Use our Google Search Box to find almost anything

You can use the Google search box on our Home Page to find any text, including books by particular authors posted on our Books pages.  Just type the main author's last name to see all places where that name appears (we are in the process of adding all of the authors, but currently, some books just have the first author's name).  Similarly, you can look for all reviews by a particular pathologist, or all references to ITP or caldesmon.
