From the basic search page, search for Executive Orders & Presidential Proclamations by first typing in your search term and clicking the search icon.
Note: the Basic search form searches the full text, while the advanced search allows you to search either full text or metadata (indexing).
Then use the document facets on the left (under Filter by) to select the Document Type.
To begin your search by searching for only the Executive Orders and Presidential Proclamations, start on the Advanced Search page, and use the check box for only that document type. Then, type your search term in the search box.
Looking at the search results page, use the tools in the left column to sort your results, or to filter results to the subject or presidential administration you need.
The metadata (indexing) has the information about the document, including the title, document date, accession number, signator, and source.
Use the floating menu on the left to navigate to different parts of the metadata.
On the right of each of the individual records, there are 6 options - downloading, emailing, printing, permalink, share, and add to selected items.
Underneath the various options you'll see Related News with approximately ten newspaper articles related to the document you are viewing. The papers shown are those subscribed to/purchased by your institution. For more on how those articles are selected, click here.
