Search the Collection

This collection has a faceted search interface that allows researchers to customize their searches by selecting, from the lists on the right (the facets), collection-specific criteria such as the artist, culture, period, site, museum, work, and title of the image.

Search Strategies

Begin with the search box: One way to begin the search process is to search for a keyword using the "Search Collections" box and then select one or more facets to narrow down the list of results.

Begin with the facets: Another way to begin is to select a facet first, which will bring up all the images in the collection that share that facet, and then to apply additional facets.

Each selected facet will be displayed at the top of the list under "Currently Used Filters." Selecting a facet runs a search for a new criterion within the existing set of results, and, along with a new list of results, the facet options will change to reflect the records and facets available in the new results set.

To remove a selected facet at any stage in the process, click the red x-dot next to that facet in the "Currently Used Filters" list at the top of the column.

Search for related records from an individual image page: Individual image pages offer a checkbox list of customized facets at bottom right. To search for related images, use the check box list to add or remove multiple facets.
