What Can Be Searched?

The search facility in Australian Periodical Publications 1840-1845 searches for journal titles that have been digitised for the service. The search is limited to words contained in the information pages for the titles.

Example of an information page:

While the most useful aspect of the search facility is the ability to search by title, it is also possible to search for any of the terms contained in the information pages, for example words contained in the Subject, Life dates, Published or ISSN fields. In the example above, a search using a word (or a number) such as 1843 or Barr or record or ceased will retrieve this record.
