- Integrating authority control in search and presentation
Normalised data is essential to a useful retrieval and properly linked data. The internal authority control service which has partially already been integrated into the back office will not be a part of the features search and presentation in this test environment. Therefore, some entries in the filter may be found twice in slightly varying presentations. By integrating authority data such issues will be resolved in the future.
- Navigating search results and context
In the list of results the user will find the searched word(s) in their context: Where in the description can the searched word(s) be found? At the moment the user is merely able to open the whole description without the searched word(s) being highlighted in the text. In the future the user will be able to click the context in which the searched word(s) was found and will be directed straight to the appropriate place in the description.
Although the button for advanced search is visible, it will not yet be functional in this test environment. In the future the user will be able make use of the simple search, individual search fields, added filters and a more complex search option. For example, a variety of search fields in the advanced search function can be combined by using Boolean operators.
- Increasing the number of filters and search fields
Currently only select core information, included in most academic descriptions, is used as the basis for filters and the field search function. Increasing the amount of this information will allow for more specific research. For example, there will be search fields for properties such as the incipit, decoration and information on provenance.
- Searching in specific full text passages
When conducting a full-text search in the test environment, this always refers to the entire text of a description. In the future the user will be able to conduct their search in a specified part of the description.
