GRID VIEW

Grid view provides a visual listing of your search results. It allows for more items to be seen at a glance. You will see the title and rating along with a thumbnail image. Additional information can be viewed by hovering your mouse pointer over an item. A pop-up will appear on the screen providing the full title, publisher, copyright, grade level, and full description. (Note: To view the pop-up on an iPad, tap on any white space next to/below the title or on the ratings stars.)


LIST VIEW

List view provides more information on items returned in your search results at a glance. In addition to the title, thumbnail, and rating, you will also see the publisher, copyright date, grade level, and description. Descriptions that are too long to fit on the screen can be viewed by hovering your mouse pointer over an item. A pop-up will appear on the screen providing the full title and description.
