The list of search results is displayed when a search yields more than just one hit.

The display of hits in the results list is sorted into the four Document Groups: Primary Sources, Biographical Material, Explanatory Material and Reference Works. If a search query does not generate any hits in a certain Document Group, this group will not be available for selection in the results list.


Number of Results per Page

The number of entries displayed on one page of results can be altered by entering the desired number of results per page in the Preferences. The default setting in the preferences is 10 results per page.



Navigating the Results Lists

Browsing through the pages of the results list is possible by using the arrows above and below the list. Alternatively you can also go directly to an entry by entering the desired results number in the input field and clicking the button GO.


Sorting the Results

The results are displayed in the results list in each of the Document Groups. You can sort the results. The following sorting criteria are available:

-          Document title

-          Document type

-          Date ascending (Primary Sources only)

-          Date descending (Primary Sources only)

-          Publication


Marking Results

In addition, it is possible to mark individual documents and transfer them to the list of marked documents. Documents can be remembered in this way. Click the box in front of the document that you wish to mark. By clicking Select All you can transfer all documents on the page being displayed to the list of marked documents. Marked boxes can be unmarked simply by clicking them again. The list of marked documents can be called up by simply clicking Marked Documents in the menu.



Using the function SaveURL the search results can also be saved for later use, saved as bookmarks or copied in an E-mail, an application program (i.e. Word) or a web site.
