Search options

In addition to browsing digital repositories or portals the following search options are available:

Free text search: The free text search page offers a combination of free text and tag search. Search EHPS by keyword or phrases and optionally filter the results using tags. 

Tag search: Using the tag search page it is possible to select multiple tags at once. This is useful if you know exactly what you are looking for. If you are interested in, for example, digitized newspapers from France from the 19th century about all subjects then you would select France, 19th century and newspapers from the relevant categories without selecting a specific subject. This will yield the desired results. It is important to know that you should not select a tag in a category if you are interested in all tags in that category; so if you are interested in all possible types of sources do not select any. 

Create a saved search: On the saved search page it is possible to create a specific search that includes keywords and/or terms and receive automatic updates on new entries that matches your criteria.
