Changes to the Virtual Vietnam Archive

To help make the Virtual Vietnam Archive more user-friendly, we have made a few minor changes to the Browse Search Results pages. These changes are mostly cosmetic, serving to make the page look a little more streamlined.

The most significant change involves the “More Information” link, which takes users to another view of the record that includes more detailed information about that item. Previously, this link was located on the right side of each record (to the right of the Item Number). It is now located above each record as a new “tab”.

A new tab has also been added, titled “Record Linking”. This tab will take users to a page with a URL for that individual item record. Within the Virtual Vietnam Archive, users are not able to bookmark records, or email links, due to licensing limitations. This new URL can be copied and pasted to be used for bookmarks, emailing, adding as links to other websites, etc.

If you have any questions about any of these features, or about the Virtual Archive in general, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 806-742-9010 or vietnamarchive@ttu.edu.
