Browse Results Display Options

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The listing of your Browse Results are displayed on the Browse Titles page. The basic display of titles will be either as text or as thumbnail images.  These titles will be organized in several columns on the page and sorted by one of four options. Depending on how your ProSeek had been set up, you may see all the results or some number of results per page.  Many of these display options can be manipulated by you to help you find what you need.

 

You can manipulate how the results are displayed in several ways:  You can (1) sort the results in different ways; (2) choose the number of columns of results to view; (3) see the number of results found and displayed; (4) move to other pages that list results (one page at a time or by jumping to a specific page); and you can (5) choose whether to view thumbnail or text images of the results.  

 

The choices you make here will be displayed in the Browse Results Display area of the Browse Titles Page.

1. Sort By:  You can sort your Browse results by title, author, publication date, or capture date (the date the material was digitized).

4. Number of Results Found and Displayed:  Next to the Display Columns option, you'll see the word "Titles" followed by numbers or a range of numbers. This number either lists the total number of results found as well as the number of results displayed on the Browse Titles page.  

 

Thus, if your search yielded 5 results, this would be displayed:  1 - 5 of 5.  If there are more results that can be displayed on one Browse Results page, you will see something like this:  1 - 50 of 153 or 1 - 25 of 153, depending on the maximum number of results your Browse Titles page is programmed to show.

5. Move to Other Pages of the Browse Results  If there are multiple pages of results, you will be able to move through the pages by clicking "Previous" or "Next," as appropriate or by typing in the page number of the results page you seek and clicking the "Go" box.

 

6. Choose Thumbnails:  On the far right of the Display Choices section of the Browse Titles page is the button you can use to choose to view the text or thumbnail images of your results. Click on this thumbs up icon to turn the thumbnails on or off.

Once you've determined how you want the results to be displayed, you can then go to each of the titles and find more information about the title.  You may notice this icon info  in each of the title display areas, whether a thumbnail or a text image.
