Changes to browse options

June 25, 2018

We’ve adjusted our Browse options at the top of each page in response to customer questions and to better align our category labels across OUP's websites. The changes are:

  • “Geography” is now labeled “Region.” Browsing by region allows you to see all articles associated with a place, such as people born in the specific region, and includes categories such as Africa or Asia.  Each of these regions includes sub-categories for individual countries. 
  • “Places” is now labeled “Place Type.” This change allows you to see articles about specific places, narrowing down by categories such as City or Site.
  • “People” is now labeled “Occupation.” This menu allows you to browse biographies by the occupation of the subject. This category can work together with Instrument; for example, a search that selects both Performer (occupation) and Keyboard Instruments (instrument) will yield the biographies of keyboardists.

In addition, these same changes to browse options have been made on the search results list page as a way to further filter down search results.
