Advanced Search can be accessed through the Search Options drop-down menu located beneath the Basic Search box on any page, or through a link located in the page footer.

Type a search term or phrase into the search box. If desired, include "AND," "OR," or "NOT."


Choose Search Only Articles, Primary Sources, Images, Video, News or Timelines from the Limit Results by Record Type drop down. Next select a subtype from the second drop down menu. News records can be limited by a year rather than a subtype. Timelines do not have a secondary filter. After you have chosen your filters, click the Search button.
