Description

In Feature #10082, we changed the default search operator for archival descriptions from OR to AND, to improve the relevance of search results when submitting multi-term strings.

This enhancement will make the same change to the dedicated search boxes for Places and Subjects. Previously, a search for "city hall" would return terms including:

  • city
  • hall
  • city hall
  • city of dreams
  • hall of mirrors
  • city of mirrors and hall of dreams

With this change, only records with both "city" and "hall" in them will be returned. In the above examples, this would include:

  • city hall
  • city of mirrors and hall of dreams
