    360 Search: Display of results in 360 Search

    • Product: 360 Search

    How are results returned in 360 Search?

    Once the user hits the Search button, their query is sent via HTTP, XML, or Z39.50 protocols to the selected databases (or databases within selected subject categories). The first 20 or so results are returned from every connection. If there are no matching results, the database will display with zero results.
    Many results will be returned with a link to the full-text; for these results, users will click directly on the article title to access the full-text. Many results will also be returned with links for OpenURL link resolvers.
    There will be some results without links to full-text, or with links to abstracts. The results are displayed in reverse chronological order (date), with the option for users to sort by author, source (database), or title.
