In this page you can locate and retrieve existing documents in the Archive. The page is divided in two sections: simple search - destined to the casual user with few knowledge about the structure of descriptive information data and advanced search - where it can combine different possibilities and search criteria.
In the "simple search" section the user may select the search terms and/or the documents production dates. The option "inclusive dates" allows search records whose dates are in the defined extreme dates in the search criteria. You may also indicate if you only want to search records with associated digital representations, meaning only to show the documents which digital version can be consulted online through the Web.
In this section you can refine your search by identifying the fields and terms that satisfy your criteria. The available options feature the selection of the fonds or collections to search, the description levels, search by reference code or specified fields.
For each field you can also indicate if you want to search all words, any word, or exact phrase.
