From the Search Results with Context 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 Search Results with Context page indicates the number of hits (i.e. the number of times the search term or expression occurs in the database) and the number of entries (i.e. works in the Digitale Bibliothek Deutscher Klassiker containing hits) retrieved by a search.
The Summary of Results with Context page also lists the volumes retrieved by a search and gives brief details of each as follows:
The title of each document is hyperlinked to the Full Text page for that document. Where a work containing hits is further subdivided, the entry is arranged so that all levels of data are displayed down to the occurrence of the hit. Where a work contains six or more hits, a link is provided to the Context of Results page, which displays the results of your search within that work in full.
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 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 Summary of Results with Context page will display all levels down to the search element.
