Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Materials that use a full publication date (year/month/day) in their metadata may be browsed by date. These kinds of materials include newspapers, magazines, reports, etc.


To Browse by Date, you must first choose a collection you wish to browse and then click on the item in which you are interested.


Choosing a Collection or Collections to Browse


ProSeek lets you browse one collection, specific collections, or all collections that are available in the digital library.


To browse, you must first choose which collection or collections you want to browse. On the Browse Titles page,  you'll see a Collections field and a Browse button directly below the navigation tabs. Depending on how your ProSeek is set up, you'll either see the word "All" in the Collections field or the words "Please select."  If the word "All"  appears, then the default for browsing titles is all items in all collections. If the words "Please select" appear, then no collection or collections have been selected. In either case, you may still choose which collection(s) you want to browse.



browse collection choice


Click on the Collections field. A dropdown list will appear showing the default list.  

If "All" is the default, all the collections will have check marks in the box to the left of the name.  To de-select All collections, click anywhere in the All box in the dropdown menu.

If "Please select" is the default, no check boxes will appear as no collections have been chosen.  To choose All collections, click anywhere in the All box in the dropdown menu.

To choose a specific collection or several collections:

Click on the box to the left of the collection name in the dropdown list. A check mark will appear in the box. Continue to make your choices until all the collections you want to browse have been chosen. NOTE:  In some ProSeek applications, you will only be able to choose All collections or just one other collection, depending on how your ProSeek has been configured. When this occurs, no check box will appear before the collection names.
