By default, the page will list all of the entries in the database sorted by Year in descending order. If you wish to sort by "Title" or "Type", you may do so by clicking on the appropriate links at the top of the page. To reverse the sort order, simply click the link a second time.

Filtering Search Results:

If you wish to filter the results, click on the "Filter" tab at the top of the page. To add a filter, click the radio button to the left of the filter type you wish to apply, then select the filter criteria from the drop down list on the right, then click the filter button.

It is possible to create complex filters by returning to the Filter tab and adding additional filters. Simply follow the steps outlined above and press the "Refine" button.

All filters can be removed by clicking the Clear All Filters link at the top of the result page, or on the Filter tab they can be removed one at a time using the Undo button, or you can remove them all using the Clear All button.

You may also construct URLs which filter. For example, /biblio/year/2005 will show all of the entries for 2005. /biblio/year/2005/author/smith will show all of entries from 2005 for smith.

Exporting Search Results:

Assuming this option has been enabled by the administrator, you can export search results directly into EndNote. The link at the top of the result page will export all of the search results, and the links on individual entries will export the information related to that single entry.

The information is exported in EndNote "Tagged" format similar to this...

                  %0  Book
                  %A  John Smith
                  %D  1959
                  %T  The Works of John Smith

Clicking on one of the export links should cause your browser to ask you whether you want to Open, or Save To Disk, the file endnote.enw. If you choose to open it, Endnote should start and ask you which library you would like store the results in. Alternatively, you can save the file to disk and manually import it into EndNote.
