Instructions for screen reader users and changing background colours:
If you do a Basic search and go back to the search box on the Results page, your original keywords are retained so you need to delete them. Many articles are scanned images and cannot be converted by Adobe Reader. Please contact the Library for further help.
Overriding the database colours will remove the Basic search button. It is still to the right of the search box.

Instructions for screen reader users:
As Quick Search will provide many results, it is recommended that you go to the separate search pages for Authors, Texts and Criticism and Reference. On these separate search pages, if you list the forms on the page the first two relate to Quick search, enter your search terms from Keywords: Edit onwards. Results are listed in the order of check box, reference details, then Full Text and/or Full Text-PDF. Always use the Full Text option, if provided, as the Full Text-PDF, won't always read correctly.
