Search screen

The search screen allows researchers to search the database using one of three fields:

A search by keywords allows users to search all fields within the database.

For example:
Type Admiral for hits to this name, including hits pertaining to a stamp series nicknamed Admiral (1911-1925).

A search by author allows users to find publications (articles or monographs) by a particular author.

A search by subject allows users to find publications (articles, monographs or auction catalogues) on a particular subject.

Search Tips
Enter the terms that best describe the document in the appropriate field. It can be a work’s title, a subject, the author’s name, a place name, etc. 

Unless you are looking for a specific document, conduct your search using limited terms.

Cumulative Indexes

The screen allows users to search the database using one of the following three indexes:

A standardized cumulative index of all authors in the database. The index is alphabetized by surname.

For example:
Select the letter A for a list of all authors with a surname or a pseudonym beginning with the letter A.

English subjects
A cumulative index of all English subjects in the database. The index is in alphabetical order.

French subjects
A cumulative index of all French subjects in the database. The index is in alphabetical order.


The classification reproduces the table of contents of the original three-volume publication, Canadian philately: bibliography and index by Cimon Morin.
