[SciPy-user] best way of finding a function

Hi,
One thing that makes it hard to get into using SciPy and Python is the
decentralized nature of the documentation. My problem is that I want to
use the arc-hyperbolic sine function. I have no idea where this is in
order to import it (and in all likelihood I could import it from any
number of sources). I can't seem to find it looking through the
documentation on scipy.org. This is a specific example, but in general
what's the best way of finding where some given function is in order to
import it?
Once you've been using scipy and such long enough, I imagine this is not
so much an issue, but it does create something of a barrier to begin
with. Or at least, I've found it to be so. Do you all have any
suggestions how to make this easier?
thanks,
trevis
