The Harper's Bazaar Archive: Searchable Fields

America’s first fashion magazine. - Complete run digitized of US and UK editions. - Full page image format

Look Ups and Browsable Indexes

The Harper's Bazar Archive offers two (2) Look ups (i.e., browsable indexes), so you can easily find spelling or format variations of, for example, an author's name or fashion item. You can find the Look up links in the advanced search page and they are available for the following searchable fields: author and company/brand  For a description of these fields, please see the searchable fields table to the right. 

Note: Look ups are also available from the Command Line search (through the Look up terms link located on the right side of the 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).  Look ups for Fashion Item and Company/Brand are listed in the Limit To section of the advanced search page.

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.
