1) Simple Search: Enter password and search terms. Different passwords allow for different levels of access for different audiences. Onscreen password information and search tips are available. Additional search help is available with the click of a button.
2) Advanced Search: Allows for a much more powerful, targeted search using multiple fields of metadata.
3) Choices Browser: “Browse” buttons pop-up a “Choices Browser” which allows searching the metadata for a given field. The desired metadata can then be added to a search box by clicking a button, for further refinement of search results.
4) Search Results: Search results are displayed in tabular format, showing title, author, and date metadata fields. The default sort order is by title.
5) Sorting Search Results: Using the drop-down list in the upper left, search result can be sorted by date (as below) or by author.
6) Document Record: Clicking on a title in the search results (slide 5), retrieves the document record, containing selected metadata.
7) Retrieve Similar Documents: Clicking on any of the subject headings in the document record retrieves a list of documents that have been assigned the same subject heading. This greatly simplifies the retrieval of similar documents.
8) Metadata Record: A complete metadata list can be retrieved using the drop-down list in the upper left corner of the document record (slide 6).
9) Full Document: Clicking on the â€œFull Documentâ€? link in either the Document Record (slide 6) or Metadata Record (slide 8) opens the document in a separate browser tab or window.
