By Phelps, Kathy Bazoian*

Receivership News (“RN”) is pleased to report that the website now offers an improved Receivership News index search for the 182 articles written by 62 authors to date. The new search function is designed to facilitate research and review of past issues by author, issue, content category, or key word in title. The 31 editions of RN dating back to the Spring of 2003 can be found at This is a major research enhancement for users wanting to access receivership “buried treasure” in past issues. You may search by any combination of criteria, just remember that each time you add a criteria, the search engine must find all the criteria, exactly as you typed them, in order to return a result. Fewer specified criteria generally yields more results. Happy hunting (research)! RN*Jeffrey I.
