Searching the Collection:
The Illustrations Index is available to browse in the search
room via a card index, and is searchable by subject. Each subject
has a class number and each card within that particular class
number has a brief description of the illustration and where known,
the date of the illustration. At present the illustrations can’t be
searched using our online catalogue. However we are currently
undertaking an on-going project to make this possible.
