Country Life Archive: Searchable Fields

Twentieth-century UK publication chronicling affairs of interest to the upper class. - Significant coverage of art history and architecture. - Full archival run from 1897-2005

Look Ups and Browsable Indexes

Country Life Archive offers some useful Look ups (i.e., browsable indexes), so you can easily find spelling or format variations of, for example, an author's name. You can find the Look up links in the advanced search page. 

To use and locate a Look up, select the field from the advanced search drop-down menu. If a Look up is available, under the search row you will see a link to the Look up (e.g., Look up Authors). 

Select the Look up link and then you will see a browsable and alphabetical index for that field.  There are some indexes that will not display an alphabetical list before searching for the term, rather you will have to enter a term first, and then the alphabetical list of matches will display.

Once you locate the index term that you would like to add to your search, mark the item, and then click the Add to search button. The index term will now appear in the advanced search form along with the appropriate pull-down menu selection.  You may select multiple items by checking the box next to each, then selecting either the AND or the OR Boolean operator radio button prior to clicking the Search button.

Note: Look ups are also available from the Command Line search page (through the Look up terms link located on the right side of the page).
