Results List after a Biographical Search

The results list after a Basic Search or Biographical Search will provide the following information:

Results will be sorted alphabetically by name (default). You have the option of sorting your results by Name, Year, or Archive by making your choice in the "Sort by" menu at the top of the list.

You can set the number of results shown on the results list per page by selecting the required number in the Preferences. The default is the display of 10 results per page.

You can navigate through the pages of the results list by using the arrows shown at the top and bottom of the list. You may also jump to a specific entry number by entering this number into the box between the two arrows and selecting the "GO" button.

To view the full biographical entry, select the name of the person you want to view in the results list.

If a digitized biographical article to the corresponding biographical entry is available and your institution holds a subscription to the respective archive, a book icon will appear next to the archive name in your results list.

If you find a results list or biographical entry page of particular interest you have the option of book marking them for future reference. For help on marking documents see the chapter Marked Documents.
