The Archive contains digitised items relating to Abingdon. Each item has two parts: (a) the item itself, e.g., image, PDF, etc., and (b) a “card index” file containing all the information we have on the item. The card index includes a clickable preview button and (for images) a thumbnail picture. Items can be viewed in its native Folder layout (below) or as a flat alphabetic Show Everything View – click this link to use it. Here, in Folder View, clicking a folder icon will switch it between being open and closed. Top level folder icons are orange, sub-folder icons are black. When an opened folder has its contents on display, these are your options:
To open an individual item: click its icon in the Link column, and it will open in a new window – from where you can save a copy. To open more than one item: click their check-boxes in the Link column, then click the Download Selected Documents button above the table. This puts the selected items in a ZIP file in your device’s Downloads folder. To view an item’s “card index” file: click the item name in the Title column. A left-click opens it in the same window and a right-click gives you the option of opening it in a new window. To filter the list by Author or Tag: either click one of the item’s Author or Tag values in the table, or use one of the three drop-down boxes above the table. To return to the unfiltered list, click the Reset button to the right of the drop-down boxes. To search the Titles and Contents of the entire Archive: use the Search box. Matches will be listed, and a Search Reset link will appear allowing you to return to where you were.
