The object of reference
You can select object (book, serial, etc.) to search.

When you select "Books" and "Journals", all books and jornals is searched.

It is safe to select neither “Books” and “Journals” when there is especially no necessity that you select this because there is a material that is difficult to distinguish whether it is a book or a serial.

The document division which you can narrow down changes by the database which you chose.

Distinction between Japanese books and foreign books can be selected only when you use local database.
