Tips for searching General Schedules (video)

Important search tips:

  • Any combination of characters you enter will be found exactly as you have typed them. For example, searching Series Description for ELECT will return any series containing the words ELECT, ELECTION, ELECTIONS, ELECTRONIC, and SELECT.
  • The same rule applies for numbers. Searching Series Number for 186 will return any series with those three numbers in sequence, such as 100186 and 005186.
  • Be specific in your searches but try variations of the same terms to clarify your results.
  • Avoid searching on terms such as record or file as these words are used in almost every series.
  • You can not use wildcards in this search.
