Searching the Online Index

Online Index Search Options

Currently, there are four methods of searching the index. The database contains entries for each signed article, Military Uniforms In America (MUIA) plate, and book review from Issue 1 forward. Company news items and announcements, the unsigned reviews in the Publications section, some letters to the editor, and the series of articles published under the heading “Keeping Tradition Alive” have not been included. Many articles have had keywords associated with them to improve searching. The index is updated regularly. Information on how indexing was accomplished, including information that might improve your searches, is available here.

There are four issues in each volume of the Journal. Search the online index by serial issue number to determine the contents of any specific issue. (e.g. Volume 2, Number 2 is Serial issue #6; Volume 40, Number 3 is Serial issue #159).

Online Index of the MC&H and MUIA Plates

Now that I have the results, where can I find the journal and plates?

Finding complete runs of Military Collector & Historian to use for research can be a problem. Finding the colored plates is even harder. We provide a guide to libraries with holdings at Open Libraries and Restricted Libraries.
