In HLAS Web, there are two ways to look at individual HLAS records: Full Record and MARC Tags. Full Record is the default display. This section will help you understand the information and labels that appear on the Full Record display.
Author, Title, and Publishing Information will be shown at the top of the display in the Primary Bibliographic Information box.
Full Record displays also include:
HLAS includes thousands of links to open-access, full-text sources. Look for links to full text in the Full Record display below the annotation.
If you're searching HLAS Web on site at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, the Find It button will locate digital versions of books and book chapters, conference proceedings and conference papers, journal issues, and journal articles that are available through the Library's subscription resources. (This button will also link from an HLAS Web book record to an LC Catalog record. On-site users can then request the book using their reader's card.) The button appears in the primary bibliographic information box after the Author, Title, and Publishing information and will open a new window with several options for additional searching and discovery.
If you're off site and your institution subscribes to full-text databases, you can link to digital versions of books and articles and related web resources through HLAS Online using the OpenURL feature. (Your institution will have to set up their link resolver.) If you cannot find the text of the source online, check with your local public or college/university library.
