About: This article surveys some current search technologies that can be used to find documentation on the Bahá’í religion. The capacity to search and retrieve documents has increased at a phenomenal pace in the past three decades. Search technologies have multiplied and become more both effective and more accessible. Emphasis has shifted from seeking information toward making the best use of the information found. deeper access to information has expanded the range of research questions that we may dare to ask.
