What's New with the Virtual Vietnam Archive

Version 4.0 of the Virtual Vietnam Archive represents a complete redesign of the site. This redesign was based on user feedback received over the first two years of the Virtual Archive, as well as new technology available from our database software provider, Cuadra Associates.

The following is a list of new and changed features of the Virtual Vietnam Archive, followed by a version history list. As we add new features to the Virtual Archive, we will update this section to inform our users of the changes.

Quick Search Page

In an effort to make searches easier for new users, the Simple Search Page has been added. The simple search will conduct a keyword search of the full document using the terms entered by the user. Users will be taken to this search page immediately upon entering the site. To reduce the burden on our system resources, searches conducted with this Simple Search will produce no more than 500 results. There are links on the Simple Search Page to take users to the Advanced Search Page.


Some media types have been combined in the Media Format field. For example, Images now searches all photographs, negatives, and slides.

The first results page lists items in order of relevance to your search query.

The More Information page includes more information about each item, based on media type. Also included in some records are see also link.

The More Information page also includes an option to see the full text that is included in our document records. Please note that this full text is not edited and in some cases may be filled with gibberish.

Some browsers, particularly older versions, may not be able to use the redesigned Virtual Vietnam Archive and certain other pages. Unfortunately, support for these browsers has been discontinued.
