What is the search results page?

The Search Results page displays a list of all the records that matched your search query. From here, you can link to the bibliographic details of each record.

Each entry consists of:
  • The publication title, which is also a link to the full bibliographic record;
  • The department / issuing body;
  • The date of publication.

What order are the search results sorted in?

Search results are sorted in order of relevance, i.e. the records most appropriate to your search are at the top of the list.

The relevance of a result is indicated by blue bars next to each result. Ten blue bars indicate the most relevant record retrieved by your search. As the relevance of the records decreases, blue bars are greyed out.

If you have performed a command line search on the Advanced Search page your results will be sorted in reverse chronological order.
