+
+                <para><function>sd_journal_seek_head()</function>
+                seeks to the beginning of the journal, i.e. the oldest
+                avilable entry.</para>
+
+                <para>Similar,
+                <function>sd_journal_seek_tail()</function> may be
+                used to seek to the end of the journal, i.e. the most
+                recent available entry.</para>
+
+                <para><function>sd_journal_seek_monotonic_usec()</function>
+                seeks to the entry with the specified monotonic
+                timestamp, i.e. CLOCK_MONOOTONIC. Since monotonic time
+                restarts on every reboot a boot ID needs to be
+                specified as well.</para>
+
+                <para><function>sd_journal_seek_realtime_usec()</function>
+                seeks to the entry with the specified realtime
+                (wallclock) timestamp, i.e. CLOCK_REALTIME. Note that
+                the realtime clock is not necessary monotonic. If a
+                realtime timestamp is ambiguous it is not defined
+                which position is seeked to.</para>
+
+                <para><function>sd_journal_seek_cursor()</function>
+                seeks to the entry located at the specified cursor
+                string. For details on cursors see
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_journal_get_cursor</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>.</para>
+
+                <para>Note that these calls do not actually make any
+                entry the new current entry, this needs to be done in
+                a separate step with a subsequent
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_journal_next</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                invocation (or a similar call). Only then entry data
+                may be retrieved via
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_journal_get_data</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>. If
+                no entry exists that matches exactly the specified
+                seek address the next closest is seeked to. If
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_journal_next</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                is used the closest following entry will be seeked to,
+                if
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_journal_previous</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                is used the closest preceeding entry is seeked
