English Drama: Summary of Matches

From the Summary of Matches page, you can use the Page Toolbar to open a context-sensitive Help page and to refine your original search.

From every page in English Drama you can use the Right-Hand Toolbar to consult general information about English Drama, to start a new search, to access the top-level Table of Contents page, and to switch between components of Individual Literature Collections.

The Summary of Matches 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. the number of documents containing hits) retrieved by a search.

The Summary of Matches page also lists the documents retrieved by a search and gives brief details of each as follows:

The playwright and title details of each work are hyperlinked to the Context of Matches page.

The icon Table of Contents icon appears after each Summary of Matches entry; this takes you directly to the Table of Contents page for the relevant play, which is expanded to the level of the selected entry in the Summary of Matches.

If you have customised your search results to display the entries retrieved in the form of subsets, you can move back and forth between subsets using the Next and Previous buttons. Using the boxes provided next to these buttons, you can also modify the number of entries you wish to display in the next or previous subset and, in addition, the entry number at which you would like the next or previous subset to start.

The contents of the English Drama database may differ from its CD-ROM counterpart because English Drama is a dynamic resource subject to continual update, and because some texts are precluded from publication on the Web as a result of copyright restrictions. Search results are therefore not always identical in the two implementations.
