Options:
  • If the word order matters, enter a phrase within double quotes, eg "first aid"
  • If you are not sure of spelling, use * to match any characters. Eg brown* matches brown, browne, browning...

What is in the search results?

Catalogues of archives are usually arranged in hierarchies - one hierarchy for each collection in the archive. Search results are of single records, each at a particular level of a hierarchy. The results may include several records from the same collection but from different parts of its hierarchy.

Some of our collections only have a collection-level record; they do not have a hierarchy. For those records that do have a hierarchy, then a link appears that will display the full hierarchy and will allow you to view other records in the same collection.

If a record has an image, a document or other digital content then the first column of the search results will contain a small thumbnail image or document icon; in most browsers, selecting a thumbnail will open a larger version of the image in a popup window. Otherwise, the first column contains an icon indicating the level in the archive hierarchy of the record. View the list of hierarchy icons.
