Announcing: Faceted Search Page Enhancements

Explore America’s Past in a New Way with
Accessible Archives’ New Faceted Search Page Enhancements

AnnouncementMalvern, PA (August 15, 2016) – Students, faculty, librarians and general interest public now have the ability to drill down to more targeted results through search capabilities that narrow a broad results list or still page through an entire collection to uncover the depth and breadth of Accessible Archives’ historical collections.

We will be unveiling our new Faceted Search Screen on August 15, 2016, and it will dramatically enhance our users’ search experience.

These new enhancements will replicate the user experience that your patrons know well. Within the unique Accessible Archives primary source collections, students, genealogists, librarians, and researchers will go beyond just the facts and figures of history and into a deeper understanding of their search topic.

The New Faceted Search Page enhancement allows users to spend more time exploring documents and less time searching for them!

Using customer feedback, reviewing last summer’s librarian’s survey and with the consultation of our Interface Advisory Board, we have put together a more intuitive search page.

  • Drill deeper into the content by date, publication type, and/or collection.
  • Search within your current results.
  • Pressing “Go Back to Original Results” produces the same list as the user had on the original search.

Accessible Archives digital collections offer students, librarians, genealogists, and researchers alike the opportunity to undertake in-depth research of important and influential 18th and 19th-century issues using a wealth of newspaper and print content. Collections focus on African American history, Women’s history, the Civil War, American County Histories, and Genealogy.
