Indexed Key Words/Phrases

With the Indexed Key Words/Phrases research feature you can list various types of media (books, videos, tapes, CD’s, etc.) and all the page numbers or track numbers where a key word or key phrase appears.

You can enter a book’s complete index (as shown in the screen print above) or only references that you might use. The key words and key phrases in the example above where entered directly from Larry Burkett’s book, “What Ever Happened To The American Dream.” When you click on the key phrase “American Dream” you can see that this key phrase is “defined” on pages 15, 23, and 27; “disappearing” on pages 13, 17, etc.

Here is one example of how a minister may use this feature in sermon research and preparation. While reading a book, he notes material connected to a Scripture verse which he would like to use in the future. He finds the book in Library 1.7 and enters the verse as a key phrase with the page number where it appears in the book as the index. He does this with other media as well. Later, while preparing a sermon in which he plans to use that Scripture verse, he chooses Reports by Key Word/Phrases and prints a helpful list of the books/media referring to that Scripture along with the page/track number where it appears.
