View options

There are three different view options for your search results: List view and Grid view. Click any of these icons to change the view (1).

Sorting search results

After you have received the results of a search, you can sort the results by publication date (ascending or descending), title, or author (2). The most relevant results are then sorted by that option.

Viewing results from Magazine and Newspaper artices

Your library may have subscriptions to Magazine and Newspaper articles. To see search results from these resources, click the correspondin tabs (3). Click the different buttons to see results from a particular database. To go back to your library's search results, click the Search Results tab.


Click the Previous and Next icons (4) to move forward and backward through pages of search results.

Using the Facebook “Like” button

If you're a Facebook user, click the Facebook "Like" button (5) to "like" an item in your search results on your Facebook profile. If you are not already logged in to Facebook when you "like" an item, a window will appear and prompt you to log in to Facebook.

Placing a hold

Items in your search results that are holdable at your library will have a Place Hold button (6) that you can click to put the item on hold. (For more information, see Placing holds.)

Note: You can also place a hold on an item by using the Select An Action menu (see Using the Select an Action drop-down menu).

Selecting an action

From the Select An Action drop-down menu (7), you can place holds on items, add items to your My Lists, and email or print item information. Select the items you want from your search results page by selecting the item check box(es) (8), or use the Select All check box (9) to select all items on the page. Then select the action you want to take from the Select An Action menu. (For details, see Using the Select an Action drop-down menu.)

Downloading ebooks

Some of your search results may return ebooks. You can easily download them from your search results by clicking the Download ebook link (10).

A window will appear and ask you to select an ebook reader or format. Select the reader or format you want, and the ebook will begin to download.

Saving searches as RSS feeds

If you use RSS, you can click the RSS icon (12) to save any of your searches as an RSS feed. This way, you can see updated results of your specified searches through your RSS reader. To take advantage of RSS feeds, you must have an RSS enabled browser or an RSS reader.
