Exploring

How is Exploring different from Searching?

Whereas Searching leads you to specific items, Exploring lets you browse all items in an area of the Digital Library to get a broad overview of the contents similar to browsing shelves in a library. You can explore by geographic location, date range, or item type. You can also explore items from a specific contributing partner or items in a particular collection.

Can I search within an Explore grouping?

Yes. Choose Explore and then select the geographic location, date range, item type, partner, or collection that interests you. When it opens, you will see a "search within" box above the list of items. You can also use the categories shown on the left-hand side of the screen to further refine your results. For more information, please see the Search Overview guide.
