Search ToolsHere are some search tools that may help you find things in the SEP quickly:
- Add a "SEP Search Bookmark" to your web browser (placing
an icon in your Bookmarks bar), which will
allow you to send search queries directly to our search engine. To
install on Firefox, Safari, and OmniWeb (other web browsers have not
been tested), simply drag and drop the following link to your
[A Note for Mac OS X Safari users: For some reason, this bookmark won't work when the Bookmarks window is open. Placing this bookmark either in the Bookmarks Menu folder or the Bookmarks Bar allows it to be activated without opening the Bookmarks window.]
- A search plugin for Open Search compliant browsers (e.g., Firefox, Mozilla, Internet Explorer) which allows the users to choose the SEP as the search engine to use in the search bar. This was written by Simon R. Ives:

Print Tools (Advanced)
One of our subject editors, John MacFarlane, has created a useful CLI (command-line interface) print tool "sep-offprint" that runs under Perl and takes as an argument the canonical directory name for an SEP entry. It then downloads the entry and any footnotes, and configures the files for PDF printing in "landscape" mode, using a nice font. However, to get this nifty little command-line program to work, you will need to install two auxiliary CLI programs, ghostscript and html2ps, in addition to the Perl LWP module. For those with experience at the command line, we highly recommend this tool.
Complete details, documentation, and download for sep-offprint can be found at the following location:
