Everett Collection Launches New and Improved Website
Everett Collection, the renowned historical and movie specialist archive, has redone its website. They are aiming to help users with easier navigation, upgraded research tools and improved lightboxes. The Everett Collection goes back over 100 years and contains many remarkable images.
Their rich offerings bring several European collections together with core historical content from American libraries, archives and private files. And their archivists really know their history and choose only the best and most evocative images. They provide captions that identify image content and explain its significance to allow the non-specialist researcher to fit the images to their needs.
The new website will undoubtedly enable a better, richer user experience for professional researchers of visual content.
