Advanced Search Help
The advanced search allows you to combine several search terms in order to tailor the search results to suit your needs. You can choose to search all or any of the terms you specify and you can even choose terms to exclude from the search.
You can find the advanced search by selecting Search then Advanced from the navigation menu on the left side of the page.
In the first three text boxes, you can enter search terms. You can type single words or combinations of words. If you type more than one word the search will find results containing all those words (you can also use certain Boolean operators and special characters - click here for more information).
Use the drop down menus on the left to select and, or or not and control how each term is included in the search.
This combination will look for records which include either canoe or kayak or rowing.
In the lower section of the Advanced Search, you can use the six drop
down menus to specify further options. The table below shows the
function of each of the menus.
