Your entry under "Inventory nr." is not valid.
It should consist only of numbers.
In some images you may have noticed a "D" in front of the inventory number.
It should be left out.
Your entry under "Catalogue nr." is not valid.
Catalogue numbers refer to the old printed catalogue.
Use numbers between 1 and 8021, no other characters.
Some numbers do not yet occur in this database.
The first box is empty or you entered only invalid characters.
Enter a word in the first box, or
enter a date in the date box.
Always enter your first question in the first box.
A period of time that is longer than a century returns too many images.
Limit your question by adding keywords and/or names.
Enter a shorter period.
The first section of the period is later than the second section.
This should be the other way around.
Do you want to search for specific years or an exact date?
Use the special date box. It's the bottom line of the search form.
Did you find years anyway? They just happened to be somewhere in the text.
When you use the special date box: delete any years from the original question.
We deal with small variations in words and names, like missing or accidently added spaces or hyphens.
This may improve the result, but may sometimes return too much.
We will search for what you have entered, literally.
We recommend that, to begin with, you leave this option ON.
NB. texts such as captions are always searched literally.
All words in a search box are considered to be a single term. But:
Raid on the Medway
World War Two bombardment
Which words are a single term? Please show us.
Use separate search boxes, so we will know what to search:
World War Two
Still, we give it a try. We will combine and correct.
We will look where these terms occur together, but not necessarily adjacent.
These results are displayed as follows:
"World War Two" + bombardment
They will almost always be satisfactory.
The words in quotes (") are adjacent.
The words after a plus sign (+) occur somewhere else.
