There are many ways to search and present digital collections and PastView offers a range of gateways to help your visitors discover and access the items they are looking for, optimising user experience and engagement.
Timelines are an exciting and increasingly popular way to present your items, documenting your history chronologically and visually, allowing you to tell your organisation’s unique story and journey through the medium of time.
