Working with this website

Via this website you search one or more databases of this institution, for instance a museum collection, a library catalogue and/or an archive. On the Search tab you can search for data in different ways, by entering words or parts of words, or by choosing from lists of existing keywords such as authors or creators.

After executing a search, the Results tab becomes available. (Simply click an activated tab header to display that tab.) In the results you'll see a brief display of each found item (a record). Click the text of such an item to retrieve more data of that record and display it on the Details tab.

On the Results and Details tabs you can mark records by clicking the checkboxes to the left of a them. Records that you mark are included in your Selection, which can be viewed on the tab with that name. You can do several things with a selection, such as: send it per e-mail and print or download record data. Materials available for lending, described in records which you have included in your selection, can be reserved per item on this tab after you've logged in through the Status tab.

On the Search history tab, you'll see your previous search commands, and you can execute any listed search again and possibly refine it.

If you are a registered borrower with this institution, and you are logged in, then on the Status tab you can view your personal data. On the Search profiles tab you'll then also be able to view any earlier saved SDI queries: these are search statements which you set up to be executed automatically once in a while. This way you can have e.g. a list of recent accessions sent to you by e-mail regularly.

You have to log in to gain access to certain tabs or functions. Usually only registered borrowers have the ability to log in.
