How to Use the Virtual Vietnam Archive
Full Record Report or More Information
The More Information or Full Record Report Page is a listing of in-depth information about a single item. It list more detailed information that the Browse Results page. The basic structure of the page is the same a the rest of the Virtual Vietnam Archive.
The information displayed on this page varies depending on a number of factors, including media type. Some of the basic information that is included for all media types is the title, date, language, collection, media type, location, link to the digital version of the item (if available), and a preferred citation for the item. Other information that may be included is number of pages, length for an audio or video file, a brief description, copyright or publisher information, or links to related documents. In some cases, information has been removed from the digital copy to protect the privacy of an individual. If information has been removed, a notice will appear on this page.
For many documents in the Virtual Archive, unedited full text may be available. This text is retrieved from the document through a process called Optical Character Recognition, or OCR. If text is available, a line stating this fact will appear with a link to another page with the full-text on it. This full-text page can also be accessed through the drop-down menu at the top of the page. In many cases, if the keyword you searched for appears in the full text, it will be highlighted.
For many items in the Virtual Archive, information is provided about the location of the physical item within our building. This usually takes the form of the box and folder numbers, followed by a "Collection Location(s)" link. Clicking this link opens a new window with the location(s) of the item's collection within our building. This location will be needed if you are conducting research in our Reading Room with the physical materials.
