The Amsterdam City Archives is changing the part of their website to search the finding aids, indexes, and image bank.
One great new feature is that the indexes search function now searches all indexes at once. You can use * as a wildcard to search for spelling variations like Jans* for Jans, Jansen, Janszen, and Janssen.
The new image viewer no longer requires Flash, which used to cause problems on many systems. Another improvement is that the website is now mobile-friendly.
The migration to the new system is not complete yet:
- Some finding aids are offline
- Some finding aids may be missing scans.
- Not all indexes have been migrated.
- Some permalinks or deep links don’t work yet.
The migration should be finished by the end of January.
