Readex Interface Enhancements, released August 19

Readex released changes to the Early American Newspapers and Early American Imprints databases on August 19, 2015. These changes affect the local databases only, and do not affect the larger Archive of Americana interface.

Changes to these database interfaces include:

• 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• Better image viewing – Working with historical documents is now easier for both novice and seasoned users. Improved magnification means less time spent adjusting and reloading images, resulting in faster, more efficient research.
