5.3 Types of Displays (9.3)

Given the variety of controlled vocabulary display types available, it is not possible to recommend a single type. Multiple display types are frequently available to the user, especially when using electronic formats. The number of display types used in print formats is necessarily limited by space

The most commonly used display types are discussed in the next several pages, including the advantages and disadvantages of each. Section 6. Why and When to use a Particular Structure describes the characteristics and uses of each of the display types for assistance in deciding which one(s) to use.
