Help with searching

Guidance on searching the artsderbyshire website.

To use the site search, enter your query terms in the search box and click the search button underneath. You can use single terms or type in a whole sentence or phrase but try to use terms that are likely to be within the text of the pages you are searching for.

The search will find pages from the website containing as many of these words and phrases as possible, ranked so that the documents most relevant to your query are shown first. Don't worry about missing a document because it doesn't have one of the terms in your query because the search returns relevant results even if they don't contain all query terms.

For a more powerful search in the three main databases we hold, use an advanced search.

Your search results

Once you have submitted your query, the search will return a page of results. You will see the title of the document and a brief summary that is likely to indicate what the document is about. Click the title to go to the actual document.

Sorting your results

Results are sorted by their relevance to the specified query. Click sort by date to re-display the results sorted by their last modified date. Clicking sort by relevance will re-sort by relevance.

Showing more results

If your search has yielded lots of results, the search will divide these into several pages. You will see 10 results on each page. Use the Previous or Next links to navigate through the results, or jump to the page you want by clicking on the page number.

Refining your search

At the top of the results page is another search box allowing you to refine your search.
