Historic New Orleans Collection launches new online catalogue

The Historic New Orleans Collection has launched a new version of its online catalogue.

The new site makes the institution’s entire catalogued collection of books, manuscripts, maps, photos, art, and ephemera accessible to the public for the first time.  

The online catalogue presents three ways to search: by keyword, advanced search, and collections themes.

Researchers will also have access to more than 17,000 images, viewable in a gallery where they can be enlarged or compared side-by-side. The catalogue also features hyperlinks to PDF finding aids for manuscript collections and when cataloging permits researchers can navigate through the hierarchy of archival description. 

The catalogue allows the bookmarking of items to create a temporary list of items across multiple searches. At present bookmarked items are not saved once the catalogue is closed in your browser.

The catalogue is generated from the MINT collections management system by MINISIS Inc. MINT is an integrated library, archive and museum collection management system that The Historic New Orleans Collection helped to develop.

We invite you to experience The Collection’s new online catalogue and learn more about the institution and its holdings.
