The Search History page records all the searches you have run during the current session. It allows you to run searches again, modify them, save them to My Archive, combine them with other searches or delete them from your list.
There is a separate Search History page for Collection Searches and Repository Searches.
Note that the searches on the Search History page are only retained for a single session, so any information recorded there will be lost once you exit Archive Finder. If you want to keep a search beyond the current session then you must save it to the My Archive area. Please also note that results from a Quick Search are not stored in the Search History.
Click the Search History link in the main areas of Archive Finder to open the Search History index.
