We've found that many of the searches on Scribd are for broad topics - "ebooks," "finance," "java" etc. While these searches return a lot of results, they may not always be what you're looking for.
To help with these types of searches, we've created Topics, collections of the best documents on the search topics of interest to our users. Now, when you search for "ebooks," you can go directly to the topic as well as browse through the search results.
You can check out all current topics at http://scribd.com/topics.
