Now study the results in books 1 by 1 selecting the book you want to study 1st, or book showing most relevant context with the search word 1st, and then next important and so on. e.g. in this search 3rd result selected 1st.

After opening the book page in new tab, again press Ctrl with f, and copy and paste the same word again to get it highlighted.
You can also check previous pages, search same word in it and if found try 1 more previous page and so on till you find the word consecutively in all previous pages and then you can start research on that word from that page. After completing that page, study next page and so on. But before starting study of any page, get the relevant word highlighted.

After studying the search results in 1 book, open new book page in new window and repeat the same process. Then study next important book and so on, till you study the topic in sufficient detail.
