The Index is arranged alphabetically by topic with clickable hyperlinks in blue that will take you to the Portal page where that topic is located. Note that you may have to scroll down the page that opens to find the topic you are looking for.

In order to SEARCH a topic on the Index you must be using either a Mac or PC desktop or laptop computer, or a tablet with a PHYSICAL KEYBOARD. You will NOT be able to utilize the search function on a tablet or phone without a physical keyboard.  (A screen keyboard will not work for the search function.)

To SEARCH a topic on the Portal open the file below labeled "INDEX of Docent Web Portal" then:

  1. If using an Apple device, hit the "Command" and "F" keys. If using a Windows device, hit the "Control" and "F" keys.  
  2. A small window will open on your screen where you can type in the topic you are searching for. 
  3. Once entered, hit the "Return" key and the Index will scroll to the topic you are searching for which will be highlighted. 
  4. If the topic appears more than once in the Index, there will be small arrows near the search window which you can use to navigate back and forth to the different locations your topic of search is listed in the Index.
