The file search allows you to search by keywords, date, location and more.
- Click Search on the Portal navigation bar.
- Enter your search parameters. The search is an "AND" search and will require all the fields you list to present. If the search doesn't return results, try entering fewer fields or toggling the Find Resultsfield.
The Keywords box is where you type your search term(s). Libris indexes the information found in the filename plus file IPTC metadata like Description/Caption, Title, Keywords, City, State and Country.
Use the following search operators to optimize your searches:
Use "&" to find files that contain both words: image & photo
Use "|" to find files that contain either word: image | photo
Use "-" to find files that contain "image" but not "photo": image -photo
Use "(" and ")" to group parts of the search: (photo | photograph) image
Use quotes to match a phrase: "the best photo"
All of these may be combined: "the best photo" & (portrait | travel) photographer
Search results will appear on the next screen in order of date taken (most recent first) by default.
NOTE: You can only download individual files from search results on the Portal if you have logged in as an Invited User.
To refine your search further, click "Refine Search" at the top left corner.
Whether browsing or searching, the next step is to download files.
