 Searching is possible by keyword, author, title and subject. The Library’s Innopac Millennium system particularly facilitates keyword searching of all text of the records. Forms of name are not always consistent, and a project to impose name authority control is planned. Library of Congress subject headings are used, but have not yet been applied throughout the early printed book collections. ​ Searching is possible by keyword, author, title and subject.
