  • Help — Dumbarton Oaks
    recording her descriptions of these spaces her plant lists and plant alternatives for each and her instructions for continued maintenance of the garden so as to ensure preservation of the distinct character of each space Over time other landscape architects such as Ruth Havey and Alden Hopkins have succeeded Beatrix Farrand and either altered her designs or contributed new ones Because these contributions or alterations are not recorded in the Plant Book the Dumbarton Oaks Garden Archives content must necessarily extend beyond the scope of Farrand s Plant Book Some content concentrates on designs for the interior and exterior of the house other building structures or land included in the property once owned by Robert and Mildred Bliss Drawings and photographs exist that document these distinctive spaces therefore they are included as one of the 46 garden areas Garden areas below are arranged by The South Front Enclosed Gardens Informal Gardens and Additional Garden and Estate Areas

drawings and photographs Each entry in the index serves as a link to the content that contains that topic The index can be browsed in alphabetical order by clicking the lettered tabs It can be searched using a text search that finds exact letter by letter matches The Garden Archives Index is a three level index which was built first with concepts drawn from the correspondence Terms for drawings and photographs were added later Top level terms which appear in the largest font are the broadest concepts Clicking a top level term takes you to a results page with multiple pieces of content Second and third level terms become progressively narrower in focus Some second level and most third level terms are linked to a single piece of content Clicking these terms opens the content in the rightmost tab inside the Garden Archives webpage To open multiple links from the index use right click PC or command click Mac to open new tabs in your browser How to Search the Garden Archives Index To search the index enter a keyword or phrase in the search box The words will be searched exactly as entered and will retrieve results that match letter by letter including punctuation The index search functions much like the ctrl F PC or command F Mac simple search shortcut available in your browser or Microsoft Word A total number of results is given under the search box and index entries containing exact matches are highlighted throughout the index The tabs with content matching the search term will be highlighted in beige The tab which is grayed out is the tab currently being viewed To navigate between matches use the arrows When you reach the last relevant match within an alphabetical tab the index will briefly clear and reload your search in the next alphabetical tab containing search results Return to top Abbreviations used in the Index Frequently occurring people and places are identified with the following abbreviations All people and places can be found by searching complete names but some searches will require the use of abbreviations since an exact match must occur or results will not appear BF Beatrix Farrand CP Caroline D Phillips DO Dumbarton Oaks IMS Isabelle M Stover JT John Thacher MB Mildred Barnes Bliss MxF Max Farrand RB Robert Woods Bliss RH Ruth Havey RP Robert W Patterson RW Rose A Willgoose SBBG Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Return to top Diacritics Index terms that include diacritics will only be matched to searches that include diacritics For example the index term liliacées cannot be found by searching liliacees If your keyboard cannot type diacritics it can be helpful to search parts of the word before or after the diacritical mark In our example searching liliac brings up the desired matches Return to top Garden Area Names Names of many garden areas have changed over time To ensure your index search covers all possible results for a garden area search alternate names and variant spellings of names such as Arbor Terrace which was at one time referred to as the Herb Garden and Terrace E A complete list of possibilities can be found below under Chronology of Garden Names Return to top Articles and Prepositions Generally leave off initial articles when searching a phrase such as The Mysteries of Flowers Initial articles and prepositions are skipped when alphabetizing and therefore are masked from searching as well If you cannot find a phrase using a search with initial articles or prepositions included try searching again with only keywords This rule applies to terms in English and foreign languages throughout the index See the lists below for articles and prepositions to skip at the beginning of a phrase English articles a an the Foreign articles le la l les un une des du de la de l des English prepositions against along as at before between by during for from in into of on some to under versus vs with Return to top Punctuation A search for terms with punctuation may return varied results Example Blackwells 2 results Blackwell s 17 results Return to top Alternate Spellings If your search word or term may have an alternate British English spelling be sure to search that variation as well as the American spelling You may find additional relevant results that were not returned before Example theatre 7 results theater 8 results Return to top Tips and Frequently Asked Questions The tips listed below will make your searching more efficient and comprehensive How do I clear a search Highlight and delete your keyword or phrase The index will reset automatically erasing your previous search How do I modify a search Change or retype the keyword or phrase in the search box and the index will automatically initiate a new search using your modified term after a few seconds Can I search just one alphabetical tab of the index You can initiate a search from any letter of the index and begin browsing results in that letter first A new search always highlights and jumps to the closest exact match This can be useful if you know that your desired term appears in a certain letter and you do not want to click through matches found in many other letters How do I reduce the number of results If you know the exact term you are looking for you can add more words to a phrase in the search box You can also try searching both singular and plural variations on a word to see how this changes your results If your concept remains too broad try searching synonyms or thematically related terms Example A search for Garden retrieves too many results A search for Garden Library reduces the number of results Why are there no results for my search There is no letter by letter match for the word or phrase you entered in the search box Check for spelling and typing errors Try searching singular and plural forms spelling variations or parts of the word For compound words search the words together and separately An exact match includes punctuation If you are not sure that you are including exact punctuation try searching parts of a phrase without including punctuation Examples grape arbors no results grape arbor 24 results peony 7 results peonies 5 result landscape 370 results landscapes 2 results landscaping 12 results landscap finds results for all variant word endings 382 results sun dial 11 results sundial 12 results How do I search different forms of words Because the Index Search looks for exact letter by letter matches you must perform two separate searches using both plural and singular terms to find results that match both forms of the word For example you must search both cemetery and cemeteries to retrieve comprehensive results This occurs for all words that change spelling in plural form When the root of a word does not change you can enter just a few letters of a word that you wish to find and all variations on that word will be highlighted as matches For example searching for plant brings up plant plants planting and plantings as search results How do I find specific people in the index Top level terms are the broadest entries for individuals To find the top level term for a specific person enter his or her name into the search box in Last Name First Name order with a comma separating the names Example Thacher John Some people appear in the correspondence without last names These people are indexed under Surname Unknown Example Surname Unknown Florence A search for unknown will also give results for those people whose last name could not be determined Can I save my search When you perform a search the Garden Archives Index saves your search term and place in the index when you click an index term to open content The index will also save your active search when you move between the Garden Archives Home Contents Index and Help tabs The Index tab only resets if you navigate away from the index without performing a search if you erase the search box or if you reload the entire Garden Archives site Return to top Search Refine Tab What types of material can I find through a search The Dumbarton Oaks Garden Archives includes correspondence drawings photographs maps contemporary art installations and garden area histories It also contains biographical information for individuals and firms associated with the development of the Dumbarton Oaks Gardens or with Robert and Mildred Bliss Does a search look for search terms in the actual correspondence document No a search does not look for entered search terms within an actual correspondence document When a search is performed it is matching the search terms entered with terms that have been created for the record s content For more information see Explanation of Fields How do I initiate a search I nitiate a search by selecting the Search Refine tab Enter a keyword s into the General Search box or the Title Keywords search box and press the Enter or return key or click on the search button A date search for materials can be done by entering a single date in the Start box or a date range into the Start and End boxes under Limit by Year followed by pressing the Enter or return key or by clicking on the search button What is a General Search A General Search is a broad search that retrieves many results It searches many content fields containing the term s entered into the search box All content fields are defined above under Explanation of Fields What is a Title Keyword search A Title Keyword search is a limited search that retrieves more specific results It searches only the title field for term s entered into the search box What is an Accession No search Each content item has been assigned a unique accession number An Accession No search is a very targeted search for the exact character string making up the accession number To retrieve the desired item enter the accession number in the search box exactly as it has been assigned including spaces and punctuation Can I search a phrase Search a phrase by placing quotes around the search terms entered into the General Search or Title Keywords search box Can I perform a Boolean search A Boolean search allows for more than one keyword or phrase to be searched using operators to produce more relevant results Use the Boolean operator AND to narrow a search and the Boolean operator OR to broaden a search A search for fountain AND basin will retrieve results that include both the terms fountain and basin A search for fountain OR basin will retrieve results that include either the term fountain or the term basin How does the Limit by Year function Limit a search of all content to a specific date or date range by entering the year s into the search box es Following a General Search or Title Keywords search use the Limit by Year search box to filter results to a specific year or range of years How do I clear my search Clear any search by clicking on the clear button Individual search terms can be deleted by clicking on the X to the left of Current Search term or by deselecting the refinement terms under Refine Search Simply highlighting and deleting terms in any search box will not clear the search How can I refine my search results Refine search results by Name Garden Area Material Type and or Period after performing a General Title Keywords or Limit by Year search Results can also be sorted by date or alphabetically by title Once a selection is made the results will automatically be limited Is it possible to limit search results by more than one name garden area or material type Limit search results by selecting more than one refinement in a particular category under Refine Search For example following a General Search select drawings and photographs to narrow search results to just those Material Types In most cases selecting multiple refinements within one category functions as a Boolean OR search and will broaden the results For example following a search for benches results can be limited by more than one garden area such as Box Terrace and Fountain Terrace The search results for benches will be refined for content having the terms Box Terrace OR Fountain Terrace in the Garden Area field Some garden areas have changed over time leading to a name change as well For example the present day Arbor Terrace was previously named Terrace B or B Terrace and sometimes referred to as the Herb Garden To retrieve all content related to a present day garden area name select all names under Refine Search referring to the garden area A list of all garden area names can be found below under Chronology of Garden Names The Name refinement uses a drop down menu to the right of the text box to limit search results If selecting multiple names the drop down default is set to perform an OR search For example selecting Mildred Bliss OR Beatrix Farrand will limit results to those items that have either name appearing in the content record name fields Refining by Mildred Bliss
