- Select the catalogue, where You would like to find a document and activate its name.
Then the view with four windows will be opened. You can adjust the size of the window for Your convenience.
- If You know the first letter of either the author's name or title (if there is no author),
press the suitable button in the top of the window. The alphabetical list of dividers ex starting with selected letter
will be opened immediately in the left window.
- Choose the divider, behind which the card of the book
that You need should be placed alphabetically. Activate that divider. In the
middle window the name of the chosen divider and the numbers of cards that are
placed behind it will be once again displayed. The gap in the card's numbering
means that the record of „missing“ cards is already in NLL LIBIS catalogue. If
You remember that cards behind the divider are placed in the alphabetical order,
finding of the desirable card is easy. Looking at Lithuanian catalogue next to
the card's number You can see the author's surname and title of the document. It
is the information of automatically identified text (the result of OCR program).
The identified text quality is not equal. Hand-written cards are often
misidentified (You see the undecipherable text). However, often well-identified
text will help You to find the desirable book. Now all automatically identified
information is checked and mistakes are being corrected. So day after day You
may find over and over new data in the image catalogue.
- Activate the number of chosen card and in the right window read the first line
of outspread view. That is not the right book? If You think that the book, that You were searching is before
the opened one in alphabetical order, then activate the lower card's number in the middle window,
if it is after opened, then activate the bigger card's number.
- You can choose another divider or letter without closing the windows or going back.
