The AAP Local Library is your personal library of AAP articles local to your machine. This library can be accessed to sort and locate articles, and view/customize the characteristics of each article, including whether or not the article is displayed as a Favorite.
The Library shows not only the title of each article, but also the following characteristics, displayed in columns from left to right:
|Indicates the target audience (normally patient or provider). Click the Edit Article button to change this field in the Content Library Editor.|
|Indicates the language of the article. Click the Edit Article button to change this field in the Content Library Editor.|
|Used to categorize the articles. Click the Edit Article button to change this field in the Content Library Editor.|
|ICD-10 codes associated with the article. Click the Edit Article button to change this field in the Content Library Editor.|
|Shows the article's ranking among OP users. Click the Edit Article button to change this field in the Content Library Editor.|
|Shows the number of times you've accessed the article; a higher number means that the article will appear higher in the list of related articles when you right-click on a word or ICD-10 code. This number can be changed, however, if you'd prefer that it does not appear higher in the list.|
|Articles with this box checked have been selected by our trainers as recommended content, and will appear at the top of the list of articles when you right-click on a word or ICD-10 code. If you would prefer that an article does not appear at the top of the list, you can uncheck the next box, under Your Fave and the article will no longer be a Favorite.|
|Check or uncheck this box to control whether an article appears in the upper tier of the list of articles. Note that Your Fave checkmark trumps the OP Fave checkmark - if OP Fave is checked, but Your Fave is not checked, the article will not appear at the top of the list with the other Favorites.|
Sorting AAP Articles
There are three ways to sort the articles:
- Click on the box at the top of any of the columns listed above, and the articles will be resorted (numerically or alphabetically) based on the values in that column. Click once to sort from lowest to highest, click again to sort from highest to lowest.
- To view Favorite articles only, click on the down arrow button in either the OP Fave or Your Fave column heading, then select True from the drop-down menu. Only those articles with that particular checkbox checked will be displayed.
- To view only articles for a specific audience or in a specific language, click on the down arrow button in either the Audience or Language column headings, then select the value you want from the drop-down menu.
