Enter some text in the box above to perform a general purpose search. It will start by looking to see if the text matches a shelf number, person or place. If none are found it will expand its search to the general text held about the manuscripts.
If a single manuscript is found, you will be taken directly to the details page for that manuscript. Otherwise you will be presented with a listing of all manuscripts that is some way match the text entered.
In the advanced search you can narrow the search using one or more specific criteria. This helps for when the general search is returning too many results based on common keywords.
Each of the criteria below will present suggestions as you type. You can either select one of the suggestions to limit to that value, or you can use the asterisk wildcard character (*) to select all like it.
