Explanation of Searchable Fields

Keyword:
Locates records which include your search terms in the title, abstract, and subject fields of the cartoon description.
Title:
Locates records which include your search terms in the title fields of the cartoon description. In the database, the title search includes the caption of the original cartoon as well as the title of the published version if it differs. For cartoons without a caption, a brief descriptive title has been assigned. For example, if you choose to search "presidential" as a title, you will find citations for any item that includes the word "presidential" anywhere in the cartoon title.
Title phrase:
Locates records with the exact phrase you enter as their title. For example, if you choose to search "presidential" as a title phrase, you will find citations for any cartoon with the one-word title "Presidential." In order to find the cartoon "Presidential timber," the complete title phrase would need to be entered (if using a title phrase search).
Subjects:
Locates records which include your search terms among the individuals, corporate bodies, geographic areas, or the topics that the cartoon treats.
Abstract:
Locates records which include your search terms in the abstract of the cartoon. The abstract acts as the narrative description of the action in the cartoon. In searching the abstract, you will be able to find the imagery of the cartoon, including the labeling of figures, as well as the indentified individuals in the cartoon.
Image number:
Locates records which include your search terms in the locally assigned cartoon number. These are assigned according to the date of receipt of the cartoon by the Russell Library and are not chronological by the date of creation of the cartoon.
Publication date:
Locates records which include your search terms in the publication date area of the cartoon. Bear in mind that these dates are often inexact because they have been determined by research. To search for a range of dates, enter them individually and chose "any." Do not enter a range of dates, i.e. 1970-1971.
Publisher:
Locates records which include your search terms in the publisher name area for each cartoon.
