A search for "Camelot" will search every resource, in every publication, in individual or multiple subject areas, bringing up all possible results. Limiters narrow down searches to manageable proportions if the results are too large. Limiters can be accessed before a search is made.
Research areas narrow down search results by subject area that Project MUSE specializes in (arts, letters and humanities rather than the pure sciences). Below are screenshots of most of the research areas.
The screenshot below shows some limiters available in Project Muse; these appear on the left side of the screen underneath the search boxes.
Pre-search limiters include content type, research area, and date. All other limiters become available after results of a search have been generated; these search refiners are discussed on the page Useful Limiters: Post Search.
Most searches in Project Muse will be for articles. However, there are other content types which may be searched as well.
A search can be limited to a span of years but not specific months or days.
