result list

  • If available, the default Result List tab is Evidence-Based Reports. If Evidence Based Reports are not available for the terms searched, the All Results tab is displayed.

  • Each result is numbered, and the available formats for the article are displayed-–HTML Full Text, PDF Full text, or Linked Full Text. Click the linked page numbers (or Next | Previous links) to move through the Result List

  • Results are presented by source type. For example, if you want to view only the magazines that were found, click the Magazines icon or link. Where a "Sort by" drop-down list is available, you can re-sort your results by author, date, relevance, etc.

  • You can change your Preferences settings (from the Utility Toolbar) to specify how many results per page should be displayed, and how much detail should be displayed for each result-–title only; a brief citation; or a detailed citation of the article.

  • The article title is a hyperlink to the "best view" as selected by the library administrator-–this could be the citation; a brief citation plus full text; a PDF file; or links to full text. To view a different format, click on any of the icons listed below the title.

  • For each result, the folder icon is displayed to the far right. If you want to collect several articles, click the Add folder icon for the article. To add all items on a page to your folder, click Add (1-5) at the top of the Add column. Result numbers to be added will change as you page through the list of results. As you add the articles to the folder, you can click the Folder link and review which items have been added.

Advanced Features
  • When a Result List is displayed, an Add search to folder icon appears to the right of your search string. You can add the query to the folder as a persistent link to a search.

  • From a Result List, you can click the Display link to search icon which appears at the end of the search string. The search query is displayed in a shaded area below the link. Highlight the link text and copy using your browser's copy function. You can immediately paste the link into a web site, document or e-mail.

  • If you have signed into your personal account, any search results that you collect in your folder will be automatically saved at the end of the session.
