This is actually a suggestion. When you do a search, you get a line similar to this one: Search Results Results 1 - 10 of 1050 (page 1 of 105) ◄ Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Next ► You just keep clicking "next" as you move through the search.

This is actually a suggestion. When you do a search, you get a line similar to this one:
Search Results Results 1 - 10 of 1050 (page 1 of 105) ◄ Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Next ►
You just keep clicking "next" as you move through the search. If you have to stop and come back later, you have no way to jump ahead to where you left off when you stopped. Could a box be added that says "Jump to page" and you put in the number of the page you want to go to?

Actually, the search results page number is already part of the URL, so you can simply bookmark the page and come back to it later. If you want to skip to a certain page, you can change the page number in the URL. I know this is a little tricky, and it would be nicer to have a "Jump to page" box as you mentioned. But for now, I wanted you to know that there is a way to do it. The URL looks like this:

http://evergreen.lib.in.us/eg/opac/results?query=cheese;qtype=keyword;locg=215;page=2

The last piece of it says "page=2", which is actually the third page, since in Evergreen page=0 is the first page of results. So you can jump to page 10 by changing it to "page=9". You want to leave the rest of the URL as it is. Give it a try and let me know if you have other questions.

Can you help with this problem?
