The Executive Branch Documents (EBD) may be searched for from either the Basic, Advanced, or Search-By-Number forms.
Using the Basic search form, EBD and other materials are searched using full text.
From the Advanced search from, specific fields may be selected for searching:
Note: if you select multiple document types, more fields will display on the pulldown, but only the fields shown here will search the Executive Branch Documents.
The Search-By-Number form allows users to search using the SuDoc number, or the accession number.
Search results will have the search term highlighted and show the title, date, SuDoc, issuing agency and the permalink in the top section.
Farther down are the subject terms/descriptors.
If the publication retrieved is part of a larger series, then that information will be displayed, as well. If the user clicks on the (hyperlinked) accession number, the rest of the publications in the series will be retrieved.
If the series has some of the publications in the series published in the Serial Set, information, with a link, will display to that effect (see below).
A link to the PDF (the publication) is included, as well (not shown here).
On the right of each of the individual records, there are 6 options - downloading, emailing, printing, permalink, share, and add to selected items.
Underneath the various options you'll see Related News with approximately ten newspaper articles related to the document you are viewing. The papers shown are those subscribed to/purchased by your institution. For more on how those articles are selected, click here.
Users who also have the ProQuest Serial Set Digital Collection will notice information in the Summary field providing links to other documents within the same series, or related documents.
Users whose holdings don't include this, should see the information without the hyperlinks.
