Working with this website

After executing a search, the Results tab becomes available. (Simply click an activated tab header to display that tab.) In the results you'll see a brief display of each found item (a record). Click the text of such an item to retrieve more data of that record and display it on the Details tab.

On the Results and Details tabs you can mark records by clicking the checkboxes to the left of a them. Records that you mark are included in your Selection, which can be viewed on the tab with that name. You can do several things with a selection, such as: send it per e-mail and print or download record data.

On the Search history tab, you'll see your previous search commands, and you can execute any listed search again and possibly refine it.
