Viewing and understanding records

Clicking on a title in the results list will take you to the full, consolidated record. The full record includes more information about the title, such as publication details, language and format. The amount of information will depend on the content of the source records supplied by the contributing libraries which hold that title.

You can use the <  > buttons to skip to the next or previous record in your results set. You can use the <<  >> buttons to skip to the first or last record in your results set. The 'Back to results' button will take you back to the results list.

The full, consolidated record is made up of information drawn from the original records of the different holding libraries.

If there is only a single holding library then the consolidated record and the original record will be the same.
