Archives, historically, have a very difficult time being “discovered.” Most researchers or users find out about collections from their peers or from the archivist in a reference interview. In an effort to increase the usability of the UHD Digital Archives, we’ve launched a new page on our site: Discover the Collections.

Here users can find their way around the collections visually, in a more intuitive and contextualized way. Using regular hyperlinking technology, they can move from one collection to another seamlessly, and new collections can be added into the “universe” as they come online.
