  • Find what you need with a more intuitive advanced search
  • Efficiently browse hits with better “Next Page” link placement
  • Track your Citizen Archivist contributions with updated user account pages
  • Add data from scanned records to your developer toolbox with increased API functionality

I refer to the US National Archives in several entries in the Writer’s Guide. It looks like they’ve upgraded their catalog. It seems like it is all on the front end, but if you get results that don’t match anything in the Guide, please let me know.
