Search Help

Note: different collections cover different years.

Limits: Use the Limit options to restrict your results by a specific collection, by method of collection (dictation, etc.), or by the availability of digital objects.

Native and translated words: Searching by "Title" searches both native-language titles and their English translations.

Text numbers: Text Numbers should be preceded by a prefix "PN" or "LN" (entering the number "20" will retrieve both PN 20 and LN 20).

Wildcard: You may use the wildcard * anywhere in a word or phrase. (E.g. Zenidba*Osman* will find "Zenidba Arnaut Osmana" and "Zenidba Babic Osmana.")

Diacritics: Characters which include diacritics should be entered using their Roman-alphabet equivalents. (I.e. type "c" to represent c, č, or ć.)

Dates: Dates should be entered in the format YYYY-MM-DD. Use ";" to indicate multiple dates and "/" to indicate a range of dates. (E.g. 1935-04-02; 1935-04-06/1935-04-07. Note that such a search will retrieve only records which contain precisely this range of dates in the "date" field. It is not possible to search by range of dates such that every record for an included date will be retrieved.) Give example of * in date search.

Browse Hints Entering "bih" in the "Location" field will retrieve:
  Bijelo Polje
  Donja Taleža, etc.
