The “Recent Stack” displays a list of items that were recently searched and selected. It is Minrva’s version of a “history.”
Information displayed in the Recent Stack:
- Title - The title of the item.
- Location - The location of the item.
Selecting an item is one of the most important things to understand in Minrva. Once an item has been searched and selected (most commonly using the Catalog Search Module), it is added to your Recent Stack. Other modules will use these recently selected items to provide you with information based on your history.
For example, a user can search, then select an item from the Catalog Search Module. This will add the selected item to the Recent Stack. The user can then navigate to the “Citations” Module. They will then select from their Recent Stack list to generate a citation for that item.
After navigating from the home menu to the Recent Stack page, you can select the “Clear History” button, located at the bottom of the page. Selecting this will clear your entire history.
Selecting an Item
By clicking on one of the list items from the Recent Stack Module, you can select that item. More information will be displayed, such as additional locations, status, and description.
