Cómo hacer búsqueda en nuestro portal

Búsqueda rápida
Para hacer una búsqueda rápida introduzca un solo término o atributo “keyword”, tal como música, sin agregar comillas. eMuseum realizará una búsqueda en nuestra base de datos de todos los objetos que contienen el término música tanto en el título de la obra, en sus temas, o parte de su descripción. Puede ingresar el término en inglés ya que nuestra base de datos reconoce ambos idiomas.
Si quiere hacer una búsqueda más específica, con múltiples términos, debe utilizar comillas para obtener mejores resultados. Por ejemplo, “festival de teatro” o “Universidad de Puerto Rico”.
Luego de hacer su búsqueda inicial puede hacer clic en el botón de “filtrar”, en el área superior derecha, para añadir otras opciones a su búsqueda. Por ejemplo, combinar objetos de un tema en específico, como música, de un artista particular.

Búsqueda avanzada
Para hacer una búsqueda avanzada deberá hacer clic en el enlace al extremo inferior derecho de la barra de búsqueda. Puede hacer búsqueda de objetos o de artistas utilizando nuestros diferentes filtros (título, artista, número de objeto, descripción, fecha, clasificaciones y colecciones). Si conoce el número de registro del objeto que busca inclúyelo en este formato: 1987.3.22

Search tips

Quick search
To do a quick search enter a single term or attribute “keyword”, such as music, without adding quotes. eMuseum will perform a search in our database of all objects that contain the term music either in the title of the work, in its themes, or part of its description. You can enter the term in English since our database recognizes both languages.
If you want to do a more specific search, with multiple terms, you must use quotes to get better results. For example, "theater festival" or "University of Puerto Rico".
After doing your initial search you can click on the "filter" button, in the upper right area, to add other options to your search. For example, combine objects of a specific theme such as music by a particular artist.

Advanced Search
To do an advanced search you must click on the link at the bottom right corner of the search bar. You can search for objects or artists using our different filters (title, artist, object number, description, date, classifications and collections).
If you know the catalog number of the item you are searching for use this format: 1984.3.22

Searching the Online Collection

Quick Search

Using the search box available on every page (quick search) you can enter terms that will search through different information in the collection (e.g. if you search for "portrait", this can return results that have "portrait" in the title or description).

Advanced Search

To search on specific criteria, you can use the advanced search to search within certain data fields. You can search using multiple criteria, such as the term "portrait" in the title + a date range of "1800-1900". If you are not getting any results with advanced search, try broadening your search by removing criteria.

Search Tips
  • You can use an * (asterisk) as a wildcard in searches, to match partial terms (e.g. draw* will return results for draw, drawn, drawings, etc.)
  • Use quotation marks to get more exact results - e.g. John Doe will return any results with John or Doe, but "John Doe" will return results with this exact phrase.
