Collections Online

Please visit the Stanford University Archaeology Collections main website for more information about who we are and what we do to support teaching, research, and outreach at Stanford University.

Keyword Search

The Keyword Search button will perform a text-match search in all online records fields.

Advanced Search

The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a particular search category or use multiple categories to narrow down your results. For example, searching White in the People field will bring up any records associated with a member of the White family, without having to sift through black & white photographs. Phrase searching with quotation marks and use of wildcards (*) is also available in Advanced Search.

Advanced Search: Check Boxes

The Check Boxes at the top of Advanced Search can help narrow down your search by only searching particular kinds of catalogues or fields. If you only want to search for Objects, click the Objects button and type in your keyword(s) or phrase. You can also browse records within that catalog without performing a search. Phrase searching, wildcards (*) as well as AND/OR statements are available when performing catalog searches.

Random Images

The Random Images button allows you to browse the collection. Each Random Images page displays a random assortment of images from SUAC's Collections Online. If something piques your interest, click the thumbnail to view a larger version of the image.
