Browse Entries

Apart from the attribute lists the Document Advanced search provides also the browse entries boxes. The browse entries boxes allow the search to be narrowed down, that is, one can search for documents via their links to other entities.


By using the browse entries boxes in the Document Advanced search, Renaissance documents can be searched for via specific monuments (Monument), or according to where they are kept (Location), to the artist (Artist/Author), the date of execution (Date), inscriptions (Inscription), the publication (Publication) and specific bibliographic references (Bibliography).


By clicking on one of the browse entries boxes a secondary search is started with Viewer-Checkboxes.


For example, in this way one can search for all documents in which appear the Pantheon:
In the Document Advanced search a secondary search can be started by clicking on Monument: browse entries and thereby opening a new window for the secondary Monument Search (Monument Search).
In the secondary search the name [Pantheon] is typed into the name search box and the result is listed underneath the navigational box area.
To include the result in the Document Advanced search click on this entry directly. The secondary Monument Search closes automatically.


In the Document Advanced search "Pantheon" appears in the Monument box. On confirming the Document Search by clicking on Search, all documents containing information etc. on the Pantheon are listed.


Null Negative search
For example, the negative search provides the option of searching for all Renaissance documents which have NO inscriptions. By clicking on the Inscriptions: browse entries box Without Input appears. By confirming the search, all Renaissance documents will be found that have no inscriptions.
