Medieval Memoria Online

Manual

Summary

The MeMO database contains inventories and descriptions of objects and texts that had a function in the medieval commemoration of the dead.

Searching and navigating through the database can be done in four ways:

  • Browse database: search using filters; intended for global searches
  • Search database: search using a search form; intended for advanced searches and using a combination of search criteria
  • Quick search: searching institutions in a province or town
  • Full text search: searching free text and names using Google; intended to search all fields

A search query provides an overview of the objects, texts and / or institutions that meet the specified criteria. By clicking on a result, the relevant record is opened.

In this chapter several examples are included that are intended to explain the use of the database.
