You can search the Encyclopedia from the main Encyclopedia page or from the page that appears when you select the Encyclopedia subheading labeled "Search for a definition" in the Main Menu.
On these pages there is a box labeled "Search term" where you can enter the word you are searching for. The two drop down boxes - labeled "Search" and "Search in category" - allow you to narrow your search to a specific area of the Encyclopedia, or to expand your search to larger areas of the Encyclopedia.
The "Search" drop down box has three options - "Terms", "Definitions" or "Terms and definitions" - to choose from. The "Terms" option limits the search to the words and phrases for which there are definitions. The "Definitions" option limits the search to the text contained within the various definitions. The "Terms and definitions" option searches defined words and phrases as well as their definitions.
The "Search in category" drop down box has a multitude of options. Selecting one of the categories from the drop down list will limit your search to that category.
Once you have selected which search limitations you wish to use (if any) and have entered the word you are looking for, click to find it.

If the term you enter is spelled differently than how it is spelled in the books the search may not find what you are looking for. As an example - a search for "sa tarna" will not return any matches, but there are 5 entries containing the term "Sa-Tarna" in the Encyclopedia. If your first attempt does not show any results, try entering only one word (or a portion of a word) that you are looking for.
If you still can't find the term you are looking for, you can always request a definition.

You can request that a definition be added to the Encyclopedia by clicking the on the main Encyclopedia page or by selecting the Encyclopedia subheading labeled "Request a definition" in the Main Menu.
The boxes labeled "Name" and "E-mail" will automatically be filled with the information you provided when you registered. You may choose not to be notified when your definition has been added to the Encyclopedia. Enter the term for which you are requesting a definition in the box labeled "Term to define" and click
