What is in the search results?

Catalogues of archives are usually arranged in hierarchies - one hierarchy for each collection in the archive. Search results are of single records at a particular hierarchy level. The results may include several records from the same collection but from different parts of its hierarchy.

If a record has an image or other digital content then a small thumbnail image is displayed. Otherwise, an icon indicates the type of object.
