Screen cap showing the “Sort by” filtering options as linked titles and linked sub-titles on the Archives Search Results page. The example has the title “Limit to” highlighted and below is the category “Type of material” with “Maps and cartographic material” displayed as the type. Below the “Found in:” title are listed “All” and “LAC” with the number (145)  displayed next to “LAC”. This shows the number of records found in that category. Below the “Online” title are three categories: “All”, “No” and “Yes”. The number “(72)” is next to “No” meaning that 72 records have not been digitized and “(73)” is next to “Yes” meaning that 73 records have been digitized. The title “Hierarchical Level” is highlighted and below it are the categories “All”, “Fonds/Collections – LAC”, “Series”, “Files”, “Item” and “Accession”. The category “Fonds/Collections-LAC” has the number “(16)” next to it meaning that 16 records are at this level. “Series” has “(23)” next to it showing that 23 records are at this level, “Files” has “(3)” next to it meaning that 3 are at this level. “Item” has “(95)” next to it showing that 95 are at the item level and, finally, “Accession” has “(8)” next to it meaning that 8 are at this level. In this group the “Item” category title has been highlighted since it is referred to in the explanatory text: if the title “Item” is selected then only those records within this hierarchical level will be displayed on the results page. The last title is “Date” and below are the categories “All” and then a list of dates relevant to this search. The list is only partially displayed with two dates showing: “-1900” and “1900s”.
