New Collection Guide Viewer

ExploreUK launched a new viewer for collection guide this morning!

This viewer was created to work with our new online requesting system, Aeon. Users will now be able to select and request materials within the finding aid viewer for use in the Breckinridge Research Room or for digital reproduction orders.

Collection guides featuring digital content will display a small thumbnail of the materials. Users can click the thumbnail to see a full-sized rendering of the image and right click to download a high resolution .jpg copy. The viewer utilizes Bootstrap, a framework that allows scalability for use on mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones.

We will continue to evolve the finding aid viewer based on user assessment and feedback. Please send thoughts and suggestions to sclref [at] lsv [dot] uky [dot] edu.
