Searching the Collection

Using the search bar above, you will be able to find items within this inventory. The search will find words within an item's description and tags. Each image has an item record with useful metadata not found in the general online catalog. Tags are used much like subject headings in the online catalog, using the same thesauri, though sometimes modified to remove commas as commas separate tags in Omeka. Clicking on the tags in the upper right corner of an item's record will bring up other items with the same tag. Clicking the tag "Women" in an item will bring up all results that include images of women, etc.
