This article is the User's Manual for the RSNA MIRC implementation.  It is written with the general users of the teaching file system in mind (authors, and people viewing teaching files).
The User's manual has been broken up into three parts, as follows:
* [[Viewing Teaching Files]] talks about viewing and searching for teaching files.
==Viewing Teaching Files==
* [[Your Account]] talks about your login and what you can do with it.
This guide talks briefly about searching for, and viewing teaching files, and the various ways you can search.
* [[The Author Service]] is intended for the authors of teaching files.
==Basic Query==
[[Image:Basic query page.jpg|thumb|Here's what a basic query page looks like]]
Enter your search terms separated by spaces in the text box.  The system will search for any documents that contain (anywhere in the document) ALL of the search terms you have entered.  If you want to find documents that contain either of the two search terms you entered, separate them with the "|" character.  You can also group items in parentheses this (that | other) will find any documents that contain "this" and either "that" or "other" (or both).  Items in quotes are treated as a single search term, so "holiday party" will only find entries that have the the word "holiday party" in it (and not "this holiday I am going to a party" for example).
==Advanced Query==
[[Image:Advanced query page.jpg|thumb|Here's what an advanced query page looks like]]
The advanced query lets you specify options about how the results are displayed, and allows you to query specific fields within a MIRC document.  It also allows you to query different servers.
===Select Storage Servers to Query===
If your site is setup with more then one storage service, you will see a list of the various storage services available under the advanced query section.  Select one or all of these servers to perform your search against them.
===Select Query Type===
There are a number of different fields within a MIRC document that you can query against.  This section of the advanced options allows you to query specifically words that appear in certain parts of a MIRC Document.
===Display As Unknowns===
===Case Navigator===
Selecting this option will give you your results one MIRC Document at a time, and allow you to scroll between them with a next and previous button.
===Results Per Site===
This option allows you to specify how many results each storage service you query should return.
==Your Account==
Some information about [[Your Account]].
==Authoring Teaching Files==
A manual for users who are [[Authoring Teaching Files]].
