Here are some tips for searching our collections:
– Try narrowing your search down by making a selection in several of the fields.
– Try entering the word into the Keyword(s) field because it not only searches all of the other fields that you see, but also searches descriptions in our database that are not shown.
If you are unsure how the word is entered you can also try placing the symbols \* after whatever part of the word the different version might share. For example, entering braid\* will find braid, braids, braiding, etc.(Be aware that this will make the search slower.)

The proveniences are sorted from general to specific [EX: North America, USA, California, Los Angeles Co., Los Angeles, Exposition Blvd]. We do not always have specific proveniences for our items so searching more generally (i.e. USA) will yield more results which can be narrowed down with more selections in other fields.
Note: Use "USA" for the United States of America
If you cannot find what you are looking for in the drop-down list then try searching for it in the Keyword(s) field.
