Downloads and Improvements to Search Functionality

We have listened to your feedback (thanks!) and have made the following improvements to the site:


There is now an icon on the image browser which allows subscribers to download single images or a range of images and the associated catalogue information in PDF format.


  • Priorities - the proximity search now allows documents with, for example, the text "Lord Avon" to be ranked higher than ones containing these two words but in different contexts
  • Highlighting of results - now you can spot your search term easily as it will be highlighted in your results
  • Sorting - results can now be sorted by date, catalogue reference and relevance
  • Synonyms - simple synonym (single words) have been implemented so that, for example, when searching for "Elliott", "Elliot" will also come up.
