Why won’t HOLLIS let me page through all of my results?

You cannot page past 2,000 total results in HOLLIS. This software restriction has been placed by the data providers for HOLLIS’s “Articles” results.

The restriction also impacts Library Catalog results. Please contact your librarian for advice about analyzing large numbers of results: we may be able to provide additional information from our backend systems, including large results sets from Library Catalog data.
