Adding, Modifying, and Deleting Annotations
Readers can browse the 900 Theses using the Table of Contents (TOC) and the "Prev" and "Next" links.
The TOC shows things at different structural levels:
- groups of theses (eg. "1. Alberti Magni")
- groups of groups (eg. "secundum doctrinam latinorum")
- single theses (when expanded - see below - eg. "1. Species intelligibiles")
- other matter (eg. "prefatio," "corrigenda")
Using the TOC:
- Clicking on a group of theses (eg. "1. Alberti Magni") displays in the main content area the full title of that section and the full texts of all the theses within it. The TOC remains unexpanded.
- Clicking on the arrow to the left of a group of theses expands the TOC to show the theses in the group and displays the first thesis of the group in the main content area.
- Clicking on a thesis (in the expanded TOC) displays that thesis in the main content area, together with any annotations associated with it.
- Clicking on a group of groups (eg. "secundum doctrinam latinorum") displays in the main content area the full title of that group and the full titles of all the groups within it. The TOC remains unexpanded. Note that one group of groups has no title (shown in the TOC as "").
- Clicking on part of the other matter (eg. "prefatio," "corrigenda") displays the text of that part in the main content area. The TOC remains unexpanded.
The "Prev" and "Next" links offer a convenient way of browsing a set of similar items. In other words, when viewing individual theses, the "Prev" and "Next" links go to the preceding and following theses. Similarly, when viewing the group of groups "secundum doctrinam Arabum," for example, they will lead to "secundum doctrinam latinorum" and "secundum Graecos" respectively.
