General search tips
  • It is recommended that you use a wild card asterix * which will have the effect of broadening your search, e.g. choir* searches for both ‘choir’ and ‘choirs’
  • The search screen is not case specific so you don’t need to use capital letters.
  • To undertake a new search at any time, select either the Advanced Search button or click into the Quick Search box


  • To find archives of a particular person/organisation and their work
    e.g. Rudolf Laban, search the 'Person/Organisation' database available in the drop down menu under the Advanced Search option, and click on the 'Show related catalogue records' link.

    The Person/Organisation database is not yet complete so if you do not find a particular name, try entering it in the 'Any Text' field in the 'Advanced Search Catalogue' dialogue box and clicking on 'Search'.

    To find records on a particular topic
    Enter your search term either in the Quick Search box or in the 'Advanced Search Catalogue' box and click on 'Search'.

    To see an overview of a particular collection
    Click on the Showcase tab to see a list of all the collections in the Laban Archive, with a link to an overview of each one.

    To search for a choreographic work
    Type in the name of the work in the Quick Search box. If no records are found, try using an asterix at the end of the name or try variations of the spelling of the name. You could also search for the name of the choreographer either in the Quick Search or Advanced Search options or in the 'Person/Organisation Name' database available in the drop down menu under the Advanced Search option.

    To find an item by its reference number
    Type the reference number into the 'Reference number' field in the 'Advanced Search Catalogue' dialogue box and click on 'Search.' If no item is found, it may be that the item has been recatalogued, so try entering the reference number into the 'Old reference number' field in the 'Advanced Search Catalogue' dialogue box and clicking 'Search'.

    To find the latest acquisitions in the Laban Archive
    Enter 'box lists' and the current year into the Quick Search box and click on 'Search' e.g. box lists 2011
