SmartWeb: CMNH Diplodocus and Douglass Collection: Browse Help
How do I browse the collection?
From the main page, click Access, and then click Search the Collection.
In the section of the page labeled "Browse," choose in the dropdown box
how you would like to see the collection arranged,
and then click the Browse button.
The choices in the dropdown box show the hierarchical arrangement that will be used in browsing.
Series -> Subseries -> Subject -> Type -> Title
This arrangement is best when you are looking for documents relating to a certain subject area. Within a subseries, you will be given a list of subjects. Choosing a subject will show documents that relate to that subject.
Subgroup -> Series -> Box -> Subject -> Title
This arrangement is closer to a finding aid that you would use to find items in a physical collection. Subjects and their respective documents will be limited to those contained in an individual box in the physical collection.
Box -> Folder -> Bundle
This represents the physical arrangement of the collection, without dividing items into series and subjects. It can be useful if you know the exact location of a specific document or collection of documents.
After clicking Browse, you will be able to browse through the collection by the hierarchy you have chosen.
For instance, if you choose to arrange the items by
"Series->Subject->Title" clicking a series will show the
subjects contained in that series, and clicking a subject will give a list
of the folders, by title, within that subject.
Clicking a folder title will show the items contained in that folder,
and you can then click on the desired item’s title to view that specific item.
