In my opinion, some of the archives that were listed were set up in a complicated way, however; The Modernist Journals Project was set up in a way I connected with. This specific archive gave me the feeling that I was at the library using a card catalog. It was familiar and easier to use because I felt as if I had seen the set up before, even though it was clearly new to me. I could look through the archive by subject, author, or keyword which was helpful, but the most impressive part of the archive was the “limit to” option. As a viewer, we had the option to limit the search to the source most helpful, whether it be periodicals, journals, etc.
Archives have come a long way, and in my personal opinion they have changed in a positive way. It makes sense to quote Voss and Werner here, “technology ensures that the facade of the archive is changing”. No longer are there piles or files of information to sort through but we are given the technology to do the organization and process for our ease. The act of searching through archives has been made simpler.
