I prepared a poster for SAA2006 titled: Communicating Context in Online Collections

Here the links for all of the examples I used in my poster:


  • Provide easy access to Finding Aid, Biographical Data and Historical Background
  • Show record’s position within collection or series
  • Give easy navigation to other related records
  • Show series, collection, and description data when possible in search results
  • Give many access points to records – not only browse within collections, but also by location, media, topic and date
  • Include context of search in search results screen
  • Plan carefully before digitization to collect data regarding relationships among records

Here is a small version of the poster – click on it for a BIG version.
