Interface enhancements 2015
A better research experience than ever before!

On August 19, 2015, Readex launched new interfaces for America's Historical Imprints, America’s Historical Newspapers, and the World Newspaper Archive, providing students and scholars with a better research experience than ever before.

Each collection now delivers:

  • A fresh new look
    Newly enhanced interfaces offer compelling graphics and cleaner, more streamlined designs.
  • More intuitive navigation 
    A prominent search box and larger tabs encourage searching and discovery. Features unique to Readex—like the metadata-based browse options—have been retained for the users and librarians who appreciate the filtering they enable.  
  • Better image viewing
    Working with historical documents is now far easier for both novice and seasoned users. Improved magnification means less time spent adjusting and reloading images, resulting in faster, more efficient research.

These enhancements are based on clear patterns of user need, demonstrated through analysis of usage behavior and in-depth feedback from librarians, professors, advanced researchers, college students and others.

We invite you to explore these enhanced interfaces at your convenience. No training is required; these changes are intuitive to users at all levels.
