We apologize for any inconvenience! As we work to find a solution, please try searching for affected items directly through the Internet Archive and feel free to contact us with any questions.

Browse Search Results on an Image Wall


We’re interrupting regular blog programming to bring you news about a new site feature! Now, in addition to viewing search results in a list, or as a grid of thumbnails, you can interact with your search results via a Cooliris-powered Image Wall. We’ve added a third button to the view options at the top right corner of search result listings (see the image below). Clicking on the Image Wall button will allow you to click and drag your way through your entire result set, zoom in for a closer view and search image titles.


CoolIris works best with photographs and images. Give it a try, and let us know what you think.
