Selection of subject areas or individual titles:

On the homepage the current month is the default setting in the "Erwerbungszeitraum" [Acquisition period] menu, with the previous eleven months available retrospectively (under construction). A classification item is selected via the "Sachgebiet" [Subject area] menu. The search will not work if no subject area is selected. The arrow keys of the relevant browser are used to navigate forwards and backwards.

Save search results or send by email:

The individual subject areas can be sent by email or saved. The required titles are selected by placing a green tick in the checkbox of the desired title or via the "Alle auswählen" [Select all] button in the blue navigation bar. The "Speichern und Senden" [Save and send] button above the blue navigation bar is then selected. A menu appears which offers the option of sending the selected titles by email (by entering an email address) or of saving them on the PC (no email address entry, leave field empty).
