<Department name="Math" ....>
<address ..>

<Department name="History" ..>
<address ...>

<Department ...

I want to get a "NodeList" of <Department>, i.e a list of <Department>s. However, when I do

XPathAPI.selectNodelist(Document, "/root/.../University/");

It returns an "Element". How to select an entire list of <Department>s as a NodeList ?
