Sorting your search results

You can sort your search results after doing a Basic, Advanced, or Power search. Sorts let you organize your search results. You can choose from any pre-defined sorts (such as title, author, publication date, format, or call number) to display your results.

Tip:  You can choose sort options before Information Portal displays search results when you do an Advanced or Power search.


Note:  Information Portal does not sort search results for Z39.50 broadcast searches.
