Hot topics

Find information about hot topics used in basic and advanced FirstSearch searching.

Hot Topics are pre-formed searches on current and popular subjects. You can view the list of topics from a drop-down menu on the Basic Search and Advanced Search screens. Select any of the topics from the menu to generate a search on that topic. The terms used in your search will be displayed with the search results.

Hot Topics will be updated regularly to provide you with a quick way to retrieve relevant results on these topics. Please send us feedback and comments on this feature by clicking on the “Comments" link in the FirstSearch interface.
