If the Results tab lists one or more records*, and you click one of those records, then that record will be displayed comprehensively on the Details tab.

* Each object description in a database is saved in a so-called record. So, a record contains data that belongs together because it describes one museum object.

Which detail presentation types are available depends on the database. (The buttons to switch between presentation type can be found in the column on the left.)

- In the Museum collection you can choose between an Extended display and an Object card. You can click images to display them enlarged in a new window. From there you can also print the image.

Browsing through the records

In detailed display you will only see one record at a time. You can browse to the detailed display of other records from the search result by clicking the two inner arrows at the top of the record; with the outer arrows you’ll browse to the first or last record in the result.

Selecting records

To the left of the record, there is a checkbox. Click it to mark the record, and it will be included in your personal selection. That selection of data can be used later on (from the Selection tab) to print out, or to send via e-mail, for example.

You deselect a record by clicking a marked checkbox again.

Printing, downloading or e-mailing the currently displayed record

The currently displayed record can be printed, downloaded as an HTML page or e-mailed: click one of the options Send by e-mail, Print or Download in the column on the left, to do so.

Refine your search

In the detailed display there are possibilities to search further on one of the datums that are being shown. Click an olive green coloured term to search the current database on that word or name. So, if you click the name of an author or creator for instance, you’ll search for all works of this person.
