Denver Public Library Digital Collections Beta
Denver Public Library announced that their new photo interface has gone live.
I’ve tried a few searches, and it’s definitely less clunky to navigate than the old CARL interface. It’s also more aesthetically pleasing. If you choose to search all the collections, you’ll be searching “the former PhotosWest photographs, …History Colorado, Auraria Library and Creating Communities collections as well.” Search results include Denver city directories and digitized histories, as well as photographs. So far as I can tell, though, there’s still no direct way to correct misinformation in a photograph. I can email them through the same contact form as before. Ah, well. It’s definitely an improvement over Photoswest, but I hope the promised ability to tag and comment on photos is still in the works.
