How do I browse?

There are two different options to use the browse feature. First, you can access the browse tool right from the tab "Subjects". Its hover state (move mouse over tab) displays a list of all subjects. Clicking takes you to the browse results page. Another option is to select the "Product Types" tab placed next to "Subjects". Its hover state shows a list of all product types. Clicking takes you to the respective results page. In the left-hand menu of a browse results list you will find further options  to narrow your choices by using filters, like for example sub-subject, publisher or publication date; these will help you to refine your result lists down to a manageable number of products. Browse results will only contain publications, not articles, chapters nor database entries. The list of filters you selected and/or searched for is listed above or near the results list. You can clear filters used to refine the results list, either by removing one at-a time or using the "Clear All" option to remove all filters at once.

Where do I find the e-publications on DG Online?

Browse (and search) functions are focused on titles, articles, database entries, and book chapters, not on formats. So you will find a title or a document first and then, when you are looking at the title information in the results list, see at one simple glance in which formats it is available.
