Googlin' Bookshelf

file under: rtfm

Know that feeling of getting stuck while searching the pdf version of Siebel Bookshelf?

Want to use your favorite search engine to look for that specific string?

Since Oracle has put all of its documentation - including Siebel Bookshelf - online on OTN, the search bots of Google and the like have happily parsed them and so it's now a part of the index databases of the internet giants.

The following is a Google example, using the site: keyword to narrow the search to Siebel Bookshelf 8.0, but it should work in other search engines as well.

First thing is to verify the base URL for the bookshelf by simply browsing to a document in OTN. Doing so you find that the base URL for Siebel Bookshelf 8.0 is

download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B40099_02

Now let's open Google and type in your query, for example

"EAI Siebel Adapter" site:download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B40099_02

(of course you can bookmark this for later use)

Et voilá: all results for "EAI Siebel Adapter"


Works for Oracle BI, Oracle Database, you name it ;-)

have a nice day
