Online Public Access

Front and Center

In previous versions of our online catalog, the brief and full displays did not put the digital copies front and center by default. If we have the thing itself in the catalog, that's what everyone wants to see right away! The new display for digital copies in OPA puts a large version of the first image, motion picture or sound file at the top of the page. You can't miss it.

You can navigate easily between pages of a document using the Prev and Next buttons. Click on an image to see the full-sized version in a new browser tab.
