Global search is the ability to search for a word or phrase in two or more reference works at the same time.
Maybe you remember part of a scripture verse, but aren't certain whether it was from the King James Version, New International Version, or the New American Standard. Global search enables you to search all three (or more!) at the same time. You can even search multiple types of reference works at the same time, for example, Bibles, commentaries, and topics.
You can start a global search from the Study Tools menu or from the Smartsearch results.
