Select from a list
Many of the fields on a search page have a Select from a list link next to them. This link provides access to a list of available search terms, called a browse index, which may contain either keywords or phrases.
You can enter a search term in a search field and click the Select from a list link to display the nearest match in the browse index. Your selected term is displayed above the browse index in the Look for... search box.
Alternatively, you can leave a search field blank and click the Select from a list link to display the first 200 entries in the browse index appropriate to that field. The Look for... search box will be blank.

Note that the Subject Select from list page shows the full Library of Congress subject headings; alternatively you can view a list of component subject keywords by clicking the link at the top of the page.

Similarly, the Title select from a list on the Periodicals Search page allows you to view either individual keywords from periodical titles, or full titles.
If you are a joint EEBO-ECCO subscriber and you select terms from ECCO using the Select from a list page but do not check the Include records from ECCO in your search checkbox on the search page, it is likely that your search will retrieve no hits. Please ensure you have selected the checkbox before clicking Search if you wish to retrieve ECCO items.
