Q. How is this different from the Yale Finding Aid Database (YFAD)?

Answer

Some of the biggest changes you may notice include:

  • Searching names and subjects, allowing you to see the collections associated with each name and subject across repositories.
  • Searching series, files, and items in addition to collections. Searches may return relevant files from collections you may not have considered otherwise.
  • The default search settings return results at the series, file, and item levels as well as the collection level, rather than a list of collections. Staff and other users searching for known items may therefore wish to limit their searches to collections by selecting the record type “collection.”
  • Navigating finding aids in multiple “views,” including collection organization context trees, container lists, and a traditional finding aid view. You can also download a fully formatted PDF of a finding aid.
