Search Tip

A quick shortcut reminder-

Ctrl-F allows you to search a document to find specific terms.

This is particularly helpful when you have a long article or webpage that you need to quickly read through. It is also very helpful for determining whether a video is relevant to your needs. Many of these videos have a transcript attached, so Ctrl-F will help you find where your activist is mentioned. If they only appear briefly, you know that watching the whole video may not be necessary. 

However, keep in mind that context is important! Don't use this tool just to read a single sentence or two in a larger document.
