Introducing WebDewey 2.0
WebDewey 2.0 is designed with the occasional user in mind, but robust enough for an experienced user.
Buttons for searching, browsing, and locating user & institution comments appear at the top of each screen, as do links to Preferences, Main classes, Tables and more.
You'll also find links to the Main classes and Tables at the bottom of each screen.
Other links access information about WebDewey, a glossary, and a list of Relocations and Discontinuations.
Use the Basic Search box to search the Dewey only indexes.
Change how many items display per page.
WebDewey 2.0 displays your search results in a customizable list, where you select a record by clicking a link.
This is an example of the default record display. The Dewey number, caption, and hierarchy are on the left side of the record.
To the right are the notes and user comments, you will also find the Relative Index terms, and Library of Congress Subject Headings located below ...
as well as the Mapped MeSH and BISAC terms.
Rearrange the layout by clicking and dragging elements where you want them.
Don't like the layout you created? Click a button in Preferences to reset it.
Terms on the WebDewey 2.0 records -- that are hyperlinked -- go to their authority file records.
To return to the WebDewey record, click the link in the 083 field or use your browser's Back button.
Links to BISAC records work the same way.
Access the Main Classes hierarchy from a tab at the top, or from the links at the bottom of each screen ...
Where you’ll also find links to Tables.
Standard Boolean operators can be used when searching more than one index. In this example, two terms were combined with the Boolean operator “not.”
Use truncation and character masking to include variant spellings or when you are unsure of the correct spelling.
You can also browse WebDewey. Click the Browse button at the top of the screen.
Enter your term and click Browse.
When building numbers copy them to the Build box. Your work is saved while you go from screen to screen in the service or until you log off WebDewey.
Use the search history to repeat or revise your searches.
To view comments you created, click the Comments button at the top of the screen …
and then search for your comments.
You can create a new comment based on an existing one by clicking Derive.
Enter your changes and click Save.
In WebDewey 2.0, you can link to one or more OPACs from a record display screen.
You’ll set your OPAC options in WebDewey Preferences ...
