* In the full MDR demo version the results for the last three queries are stored. This enables a user to return to these results without repeating the search process. In order to retrieve the stored results one has to press the `Review' button next to one of the cached queries. If, however, the data base has been updated since the last search and the user is interested in new documents then it is necessary to press the `Check' button which starts a new search. In this restricted version of the MDR demo both buttons transfer the user to the same page.
