How to search

There are two main ways to search the database, quick and advanced searching.

Quick search

The quick search is accessed via the “Google-style” search box in the top right hand corner of the CalmView page.
By default, the quick search will search across the Title and Description fields. Where more than one term is entered, the default is an AND search.

Advanced search

The advanced search enables you to perform ‘Any text’ field searches, and also to search specifically on certain fields.

Refine advanced search criteria

By default, a search will look for the word or words you have entered. However you can choose to change the default search criteria by clicking the “Refine Search Criteria” option. There are three ways to refine the search option:
  • With all the words
  • With at least one of the words
  • Without the words


As well as an individual date the following formats can be searched:
  • Ranges i.e.1951-1967
  • Earlier than <1872
  • Later than >1872
