Serial Set Map Terms Form (Index Terms Look-up Tool)

You can access the Serial Set Map Terms Look-up Tool by clicking Index Terms on the Advanced Search form. It is not accessible from the Basic form.

The Serial Set Map Terms Look-up will only display to users at institutions with access to the U.S. Serial Set Digital Collection. The items listed on this form are terms that the editorial staff assigned, at one time or another, to Serial Set maps to describe the maps' subject matter. Performing a search on any one of these terms increases your likelihood of getting pertinent search results.

To search for Serial Set map terms, you may browse the alphabetical list by scrolling or search the alphabetical list using the Find a term feature.

To browse the alphabetical list, click a letter to find terms that begin with this letter, and scroll. These lists can be very long, so alternatively you may want to use your browser’s Find feature to look for a term.

To use the Find a term feature to search terms in the alphabetical list, use the default "containing" search or select the “starting with” option from the drop-down, enter a term in the search box and click the Find button.


The search is not case-sensitive.

Once you decide on the term or terms you would like to use in your search, select the box that is adjacent to the term, and click OK - Paste to Search to insert the index term you have selected into the search form.


If you make multiple selections, the pasted sources will be separated from each other by the logical connector "OR". You may select as many items as you want; however, note that if you perform a second search or try to navigate to another part of the index before you paste the terms to search, your selections will be lost.
