Advanced Search

Use the Advanced Search feature to refine search results. Select the collection you would like to search, enter text in one or more fields, and press the "Search" button at the bottom of the page to submit your request.

Search fields are automatically inclusive, so when you search for a term the results will include all of the variations that exist within the collection you have selected.
Example: Robert returns results for Motherwell, Robert; Matta Echaurren, Roberto; and Robertson, William.

The percent sign (%) acts as a wildcard that is useful when you are unsure of spelling, when there are alternate spellings, or when you only know part of a term.
Example: Mir% returns results for Miró, Joán and Mirbeau, Octave.
