We’ve been making some changes to the Copac interface and adding new facilities. The main developments are:
- Search results now have an estimated number of records, so for larger results you have a better idea of the number of records involved.
- The Sort facility can now be used for a result set of up to 2000 records.
- Where your search includes a title the Sort will include a Title Rank option to bring exactly matching titles to the top of the list.
- The Full record display now includes a ‘Direct Link’ option. You can copy the direct link and include it in your own documents. This lets you link directly to a specific Copac record without having to search.
In addition the online Help has been updated and expanded to provide more information about managing your search results. There is a ‘Help’ button towards the top right of each screen.
These developments are in response to feedback from people using Copac, so if there are changes or additions you would like to see please get in touch. We are currently working on the deduplication procedures, in particular for pre-1800 materials, and we will be introducing enhancements to this process in due course.
If you have any comments or questions please get in touch with the Copac helpdesk: firstname.lastname@example.org.
