Help: Selecting Search Terms from a List
Many of the fields on a search page have a select from a list link next to them. This link provides access to a browsable list of available search terms which may contain either keywords or phrases.
You can enter a search term in a search field and click the select from a list link to display the nearest match in the list. Your selected term is displayed above the list in the Look for search box.
Alternatively, you can leave a search field blank and click the select from a list link to display the start of the list. The Look for search box will be blank.
Using the list to select terms
If you select more than one search term C19 Index automatically combines them using the OR Boolean operator.
If you have entered more than one term into a search field (using the Boolean or proximity operators) before clicking the select from a list link, then only the last term will be displayed in the browse index.
Selecting subject terms in House of Commons Parliamentary Papers
There are two Select from a list links for the Subject field on the House of Commons Parliamentary Papers Search in Indexes page. One is an alphabetical list of subjects which works in the same way as all the other browse lists.
The other arranges subjects in a hierarchy, starting with broad subject categories which divide into more detailed subheadings. To view the subheadings click the [+] link next to each category or the [show all sub-headings] link. To hide the sub-headings click the [-] link next to the categories or the [hide all sub-headings] link.
Click the checkbox(es) next to the term(s) you wish to use in your search, then click the Select button to transfer them back to the relevant search box.
