Choosing databases to search

Integrum databases are a collection of information of different subject matter, created for different purposes by different authors. Therefore the first task is to define the sources, which documents contain information that you need.

You can search in all the databases simultaneously; in mass media only; in Addresses and Phones databases only; or in certain sources. You can specify the search either by setting the pointers on the left of the needed groups or by using the icons Select mass media, Select references, Unselect all.

Tip. If you need news you shouldn’t select statistical databases. If you search for an address of a certain organization it’s better to select addresses and phones databases only.


Creation of personal collection

If you are interested in several sources from different groups, it is better to create Personal Collection.

In order to place the database in your personal collection you have to enter the group it belongs to, check the box next to a database name in the column Personal Collection and click the button Go on! and your personal collection is ready. You can supplement it with necessary sources from other groups at any time. Your personal collection will be reflected in the interface as a separate group.

If you want to search information in the databases, included in your Personal Collection only, press Unselect all and check on the left of the group Personal Collection.


Tip. Personal collection is a static group and it is not automatically updated, thereby you risk missing new information using it for a long time. That’s why it’s better to include not the whole group, but a few sources only. Also we advice to refresh your Personal Collection from time to time.
