    This would be a useful addition to your instructions at the head of your bibliography.

    To search the bibliography on an iMac, press simultaneously Command + F. Type the word you want to find. To go to the next occurance of the word, press simultaneously Command + G.

    [Many users of the iMac will recognize this as exactly the same procedure used to search in the recently released Pages 5.0 for the iMac.]
