How to search the archives

Searching The Frederick Lanchester archive catalogue
Help with simple and advanced searches is available on the online archive catalogue page.

A simple text search will give you the opportunity to search for a phrase, match all the words you use for a search, or match any of the words used.

A ‘search within’ option can be used if you know the reference number of a particular item, or know which section of the collection it appears in.

The advanced search can be used for very specific searches and allows you to include or exclude text in particular fields (such as title, description, reference number etc.)
