Keyword Search

Keyword Search allows you to search across multiple fields for any catalog record.


To search by phrase, wrap your criteria in quotes. For example: "Jamestown Windmill". You can also use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard to find things in a string of text. For example Ferr* will return both Ferry and Ferries.


Keyword searches use OR as the default. For example, a search for Governor Carr will return records associated Governor OR Carr. To find records with both keywords type in AND between the words.
