Searching Picture Victoria

You can perform 2 types of searches of the Picture Victoria database; basic and advanced:

Basic Search

Searches on the all keywords within a record.

A single word or part thereof will return a list of records containing the specified text. For example either "dog" & "sheep" entered into the basic searchbox will return all records containing those words, as well records with the word "sheepdog".

Advanced Search

Works in a similar way to the Basic Search, but allows Boolean searches to be performed on any 3 of 5 database fields (ID, Title, Creator, Subject, Description) as well as all, or a specific Library Service.

Note on Boolean Search:
AND specifies: only fields that contain both words.
OR specifies: fields that contain either word.
NOT specifies: fields that do not contain the specified word.
