Keyword searching multiple documents?

Hi all--

Any suggestions for desktop software that can facilitate keyword searches of multiple MS Word document files?

Looking for something other than the default OS search functions in Windows/Mac, and one that will allow us to define a set of documents (e.g. all documents in a directory, a set of highlighted docs, etc.) and allow keyword searching in them.

Cross platform (Win/Mac) would sure be swell too!

Thank you in advance!


Shoah Foundation Research Week


Is there anyone out there interested in the research week conducted by the Shoah Foundation and willing to work on Rohingya issue? I would like to attend this one but it only accepts applications from a team of researchers. If any team out there is looking for a team-mate, I would be willing to join.

I study group conflicts and identity issues from social psychological perspectives.

Thank you.
