It’s an improvement. I like it better than the previous version. In November, the new edition of the United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) catalog had its debut. This one and the earlier one are not like most library catalogs. You’ll notice that on your first searches if you haven’t investigated it before. I like the easier way of determining whether some records are digitized. I often do searches by a state name, a few prominent people names, and by type of record.
I appreciate that once I click on an entry, I see whether something has been digitized fully, partially, or not at all. It’s also easy to confine the search to specific record group, digitized images, years, and other parameters.
NARA provides some details on the new version here.
