By default, eScholarship sorts content within a series or unit using the following criteria:
- Content is first sorted by publication date, with more recent content appearing toward the top of the page.
- If publication dates are the same for multiple items, the content is then sorted alphabetically by author name (Last, First).
- If author names are the same for multiple items, the content is then sorted alphabetically by title.
Readers viewing the site can customize their sort order by using the "Sort by" menu.
