Search Fields

You can search the Harper's Magazine Online by entering Search Terms in the following fields:

All Keywords

From the Search page, you can use the All Keywords field to search for any word or phrase contained in the Title, Author, Department Title, Subject, Document Type, Image Type, Artist/Illustrator, and Responses in Harper's fields. To enter terms into the search box, type your search terms directly into the All Keywords search box. Search terms may consist of either single words or phrases.

For example: Keyword: churchill
For example: Keyword: my lai massacre

When entering search terms in the All Keywords search box, you can use truncation to retrieve records containing variations on a term. If you choose to search for more than one term, you can also combine them using Boolean and proximity searching.

Author

From the Search page, you can limit a search to articles written by a particular author. To enter terms in the Author search box:

For example: Author: Johnson

You may type the name of your desired author either in natural or inverted order. For example, if you were searching for articles by Annie Dillard, you could type in eitheror 'Annie Dillard' or 'Dillard, Annie'.

When entering search terms in the Author search box, you can use truncation to retrieve records of authors with common or similar names. If you choose to search for more than one author, you can also combine names using Boolean searching.

Note: Some items in the magazine are 'featured images' - images that stand alone, not illustrating another item. The 'authors' of these items are artists/illustrators, cartoonists, mapmakers etc. If you enter the name of such a person in the Author search box, the search will find only the 'featured images' by that person, not items with accompanying illustrations by that person. To find those items, use the Artist/Illustrator search box (this will find featured images by the person too).
