How to Search the Collections

The collection can be searched using the Search Bar that appears at the top of each page on the website. It is possible to perform a simple search of either the articles, pages and collections on the website, or the collection specifically. The Advanced Search function can be selected from the Search Bar, and will allow you to search within specific fields.

The results of your search can be refined by making selections in the ‘Narrow your Search’ field that appears to the left of the results list. In particular, if you have performed a search using a keyword, you may find you need to further refine your search using the options in the side bar in order to filter out broader results.

By adding records to Record Collection, it is possible to export data and images as a PDF or CSV file.
