19 6/2/2014 Mabie Law Library - Brown Bag Series - Fall Tip: I like using an Index when available. For most CCH products, a topical Index is available as well as other finding aids. On CCH IntelliConnect, however it can be a little tricky. I have better results when I select the alphabet letter I need and then use ctrl-f to look for my keyword. In this example from the Corporate Governance collection, I activated the letter P by clicking the blue page and then used ctrl-f to search for political.
