Instructions for use
Browsing or downloading the digital content is possible only in the repositories of these partner institutions accessible through the links placed on the portal.
Enter the first or last name of the eminent person or any other word from the metadata description of the digitized materials on the portal in the search box.
The search results are displayed in two columns. In the left column, they are arranged in two groups of facets: Izvor zapisa (source record, i.e. institutions in whose repositories the requested data are stored), and Znameniti (list of eminent persons whose works are included in the portal). The digitized objects are displayed in the right column.
Clicking on one of the facets in the left column or entering any of the words from the metadata description into the search box on the right can refine the query.
Clicking on the thumbnail on the right (e.g. title page, portrait, etc.) enables linking with the object in the digital collection or repository where the digitized materials are permanently stored; the objects can thus be viewed or downloaded.
