The results of your search are presented in two tabs: “HEIDI” und “Articles & more”. You can change between the two tabs at any time (see Screenshot 'Functions of the results presentation in “HEIDI”')

Using the hitlist

  • Sorting results
    The hitlist is automatically sorted according to relevance. Alternatively, you can sort according to “year” or “author”.
  • Please note the hits in DigiKat (1936-1961 ).
  • Limiting hits
    The filter options can be used to limit the number of hits, e.g. to a particular publication year, language, type of media, subject heading, etc. Click on the plus symbol next to the relevant category to refine the search (“drill-down”).
  • The chosen search filters will be displayed above the hitlist and can be deactivated before further searches.
