The next step is to choose between a "Quick Search" or a "Power Search". Read the information below about the searches and then indicate which you would prefer by clicking on the appropriate button at the bottom of this page.
Both searches allow you to search the database using keywords.
In a "Quick Search" you may direct a keyword search based of only one of the four variables: Caption, Content, Participants and Setting.
A "Power Search" allows you to conduct a keyword search based on one to all five of the above four variables plus Date of publication.
A few things to keep in mind
- You might want to begin with a "Quick Search" and then refine your search via a "Power Search".
- Your search can be made more specific by being able to conduct "and" searches with two keywords.
- We tended to classify the characters of Frank and Ernest based on the role they were playing - as opposed to simply listing them as "Frank and Ernest". For example, when they are in a doctor's office they are "patients". In the bank, they are likely to be "loan applicants".
- You can move back and forth from two search modes without having to return to this page.
After you enter the keyword and indicate the search variable(s), the database will generate a list of all matching strips. The date, an indication of whether it is a daily (Monday - Saturday) or a Sunday and the caption will be shown for each strip. You will then Double click on the date of any strip that you would like to see.
