Help: Context of Results

Help Contents

From the Context of Results page, you can use the toolbar to open a Help page, consult general information about the Digitale Bibliothek Deutscher Klassiker, start a search or access the Table of Contents, Works by Author, Search History and Marked List pages.

The Context of Results page displays the results of your search in full, for an entry on the Search Results with Context page which contains six or more hits.

The entry is arranged so that all levels of data are displayed down to the occurrence of the hit. In the case of a Keyword or Title search, the hit will be displayed in a line of context with five words either side. Each hit is indicated by a Hit icon in the line of context. Where your search consists solely of non-keyword elements, for example if you use the Author field to search for a work, the Context of Results will display all levels down to the search element.

Digitale Bibliothek Deutscher Klassiker now has support for Unicode characters. In order for them to display you will need to have either the Arial Unicode MS font or the freely-distributed Gentium Unicode font installed on your PC, and your browser settings changed to ensure full Unicode compliance. For more information, please go to the Software Requirements page and follow the instructions.

You can download the Full Text of any level of data by selecting that level in the Context of Results. Each level displays the download size in bytes of the corresponding Full Text page.

Note: The larger the download size of an item, the longer the Full Text will take to download. Items larger than 5Mb cannot be downloaded and you will be prompted for a smaller selection of text.
