History Archives Photo Index Help

The Archives Photo Index (finding aid) lists the types of photographs that may be accessed in the SBCM Inland Empire Archival Heritage Center. Users may search the index for the names of people, organizations, places, institutions, events, and objects.

Queries of the databases operate by searching collection records for any string of characters entered in the Search Terms box.  Search terms are not case sensitive.

Search Term entered.  Example:  Enter only last name when searching for a person or family. (Enter Brown, not Joseph Brown).  Enter only city name, not city and state. (Enter Colton, not Colton, CA).  The search can then be refined when the user examines the search results.  Use Search Terms in the Singular form, not plural.  Example: Use airplane, not airplanes.

Partial Terms may be entered in the Search Term box.  Example:  Entering the term rodri in a search will return records of the names Rodrigues, Rodriguez, Rodrick, Rodriquez.

Multiple Terms may be entered in the Search Term box, separated by a space.  Example:  Entering the terms Rialto school will return all records containing those terms, such as records referring to Rialto High School and Rialto Flight School. (This is an "AND" search.)

To Narrow the Search, view the results of the first search. Then reenter more exact terms in the Search Term box.  Example:  Searching for Rialto school yields 93 listings, but a subsequent search for Rialto Flight School yields only 3 listings.

When the user finds a record listed in the database it indicates that images of that subject are housed in the Archival Heritage Center. 

The online database only represents a portion of the collections.  More data will be made available through frequent updates of this database. The intent of the online index at this point in time is simply to demonstrate the breadth of the collections.  Researchers should direct queries concerning collections to the curatorial staff for more complete information.  Also note that electronic collections data are only proxies for actual objects.  Although the database is regularly checked for quality its accuracy is not guaranteed.
