User guide

Biblio online offers documents in PDF format to the members of luxracines. To read these documents you need to have Adobe Reader installed, which can be obtained for free at http://get.adobe.com/reader/.

The library has several categories and subcategories of documents. To find a document you can

  • either navigate through the category structure until you get to the document
  • or use the 'Search' function, which is located on each page of the library; this allows a search for a term, such as a place name.

The list of documents displays a maximum of five documents per page. If the number of available documents is higher, a navigation menu at the bottom of the page is displayed. By default, the list of documents is sorted in ascending alphabetical order. The list can be sorted by other criteria and in descending order.

One button is displayed for each free document under the condition that you are a registered member and logged in.

  • "Download", to download the document to your computer or to view it. The choice between downloading and viewing is done in a window that opens after you click on the button. Depending on the file size and the speed of your Internet connection the download or view can take several minutes.

After clicking on the "Download" button, you are invited to accept the Luxracines license. In case of acceptance, the "Continue" link will start the download.

Some documents are optimized for screen display and cannot be printed.
To search for a phrase in a document (eg a name), use the search capabilities of Acrobat Reader (such as Ctrl + F). The search in a handwritten document does not work.
