Search for assets of any type – audio and video, images, sources, texts, subjects, places, and visualizations -- by clicking the  icon on any page at mandala.shanti.virginia.edu. This includes mandala.shanti.virginia.edu/places and mandala.shanti.virginia.edu/subjects. 

You can use the FiltersPlaces, and Subjects tabs in the flyout to restrict your search. Learn more about search options below.

Filters

The Filters tab narrows down your search results. 

If you choose multiple filters, only assets that have both filters show up in the search results.

Example: You select Feature Types: Cultural Region, then Related Places: Tibet. The search finds assets with cultural region as a feature type AND Tibet as a related place.

Places

The Place tab lets you restrict your search results to assets labeled with certain place KMaps. If you don’t choose a place, the place isn’t taken into account when searching. If you choose more than one place, then assets with either place will show up in the search results.

Example: You selected Afghanistan and Jordan. The search results find assets labeled with Afghanistan place KMaps OR Jordan place KMaps.

Subjects

The Subject tab lets you restrict your search results to assets labeled with certain subject KMaps. If you don’t choose a subject, the subject isn’t taken into account when searching. If you choose more than one place, then assets with either subject will show up in the search results.

Example: You selected Biology and Ecology. The search results find assets labeled with Biology subject KMaps OR Ecology subject KMaps.
