"A search box at the top of the screen indexes all owned titles, and Series Search is a terrific new option. Results show titles of articles or book sections/chapters, followed by the book title. Books can be viewed in HTML, text, or PDF format. Results may be printed, emailed, and bookmarked. Users can download sections to e-readers in PDF format - though not entire books - as well as MP3 files of selected text."
