New Ways to Search and Browse Dig Memphis

We’re always trying to make it easier for you to find what you need in the digital archive, and in the past few weeks we’ve added a few improvements that we hope will help you do just that.

Since many of the digital collections contain smaller “mini-collections,” we are starting to make them browsable by adding links on the collection landing pages, as seen here:

Thanks to a suggestion from our friends at the May program of the West Tennessee Historical Society, we are also beginning to add decades to the metadata so that you can browse by decade.  Only two collections are complete, but we will hopefully have the rest done soon and you can already begin looking the archives through the decades by clicking here.

If you only want to view images and not be bothered by all of the accompanying information, you might like the new image wall.  On every results page, an option will be available to “view image wall.”

When you click on this option, you will see something like this:

If you have other suggestions of things you would like to see in the archive, please let us know!

Happy hunting!
