  • AtoM@DO FAQ — Dumbarton Oaks
    Top How do I search the database Use the Search box which appears in the header on all pages in AtoM DO When you click into the Search box the resulting drop down gives you the option to perform a Global Search or click on a link for the Advanced search If you have previously viewed an archival description or the information page for a Department you may see an additional option in the drop down menu to search within a single Department s holdings To start searching type in the first few characters of your search term The Search box employs a typeahead feature so that as you begin to type the search engine will suggest possible matches in a drop down menu The search engine is responsive so the more characters you enter the drop down menu will dynamically display more relevant results The suggested results are sorted into groups whether archival descriptions Names Places or Subjects Your search term or partial search term will be highlighted in orange text Click on a title to go directly to that particular record If there are multiple results the drop down menu will display links for all matching descriptions all matching people organizations or all matching subjects If you d rather proceed with your own keyword search rather than the suggested results simply press Enter on your keyboard to launch a search query in the database By default this keyword search will only return results for archival descriptions While you can use the guided type ahead search to locate Names Places and Subjects in order to keyword search these taxonomies you will need to use the dedicated search boxes at the top of their respective Browse pages See How do I browse by access points Search tips Terms entered in the Search box are automatically searched with an or operator Use quotes around multiple words to search for phrases or full names Use other Boolean operators such as and to combine terms or and not to exclude terms For a full list of available search operators see AtoM s documentation Return to Top What is included in my search results Your search results include any record in which your search term appears This means collection level records will appear alongside lower level files that may be a part of that same collection After executing a search query your results will load on a new page Your search term will appear at the top of the page followed by the total number of results The results themselves will appear in the main area of the screen Each search result includes several pieces of information to help you determine whether a given record is relevant to your query Titles appear in blue text These are active links click on a title to display that archival description Identifiers are displayed in orange text Records from the Image Collections and Fieldwork Archives will have a DcWaDIC identifier Those from the Dumbarton Oaks Archives will have a DDO DOA identifier On the same line as the identifier the level of description and dates appear in gray text The level of description indicates whether the record describes a collection series or file within the archive A short description provides an excerpt from the Scope and Content note of the archival description The Creator associated with the record appears below the description in gray text The Search results page will display the first 100 results from your search query To continue browsing through the records scroll down to the bottom of the page and use the pager tool to view the rest of the results set AtoM 2 1 employs Elasticsearch to power its search engine Please note that results are not weighted by level of description or field in which your term appears So you should use the Facet filters in the left hand side of the page to narrow your results The counts next to the filter terms represent the number of archival descriptions that have the filter terms associated with your search term You can expand and collapse each facet by clicking on the down and up arrows in each facet label You have the option to filter your results by Level of description Limits results to a specific level of description e g collection series file item etc

in English When you click on a facet term to narrow the results the page will reload with the related records If you click on a second facet term results will be returned that are associated with both selected facet terms Click back on the bolded underlined facet term to unselect the filter By using different combinations of Facet filters you can continue to narrow down your search results to the
