Search results

The result screen is displayed after the search operation is complete. This screen shows a list of short titles. By default the titles are sorted by year of publication. This collection of short titles is also called the Shortlist. Each term in a title that corresponds with your search term, is considered a hit. You can use the shortlist to analyze whether or not your search criterion was successful.
