When the results list appears, simply click on a title to open the record: a new window will open, with the title, source, year, volume and number of publication (if relevant), pagination, language of publication and of summaries, abstracts if they exist, any notes, illustrations and comments, and keywords in French and English.
By clicking on the buttons facing the record you can go back to the list of results, add a record to your personal results (basket), print the result or send an email to a correspondent (you can email several records or even a complete list of search results).
If the PDF icon is displayed, access to the full text is free and immediately accessible by clicking on the icon.
All keywords, authors and sources are active links that you can click on to initiate a new search without going through the “Search” screen.
