This page describes the features Biography Reference Center's Result List, including filters and sorting options. Search results can include names, biographies, interviews, or related articles, and can include links to full text.
The Result List Screen has two columns—Narrow your results and All Results. You can hide or show the different areas by clicking the control arrows near the top of your results. Your library administrator decides whether the subject clusters (Narrow your results area) displays.
Narrow your results – You can narrow by source type, subject, journal, author, and more. This feature, also known as “clustering,” is helpful if you want to discover the major subject groups for your topic without having to browse multiple pages of results, or checking individual articles to see if they are relevant.
To narrow your results, click a hyperlinked term in the "Narrow your results" column. A new Result List, limited to the chosen term is displayed and a new list of terms appears in the left-hand column.
All Results – The articles that were found display in the center of the Result List Screen.
The article title link takes you to the citation information and/or the full text. Place your mouse over the Preview icon to view the Abstract.
The HTML Full Text link takes you directly to the full text of the article.
Add to Folder – To save an article to the Folder, click the Add to Folder link found under the title or inside the Article Preview that you hover over with your mouse.
Alert/Save/Share – Click this link to view alerting, linking and bookmarking options.
The library administrator decides which features will be available, so your Result List may look slightly different.
