Visually, this archive is a bit minimalist in reference to it’s website. Most of the page is taken up by the background while the archive itself is placed to the left. Although it seems simple, the search is actually very extensive! The search can be very specific, down to the date. You can even search for a notable phrase that you may remember from a book or passage and the archive will search for that phrase. There is a tab showcasing what is actually archived there. For example, the archive contains not only poems and books but manuscripts and pictures too!
The archival aspects are obvious in the extensive ways to search for anything in the database. One thing that sticks out to me, however, is the bibliography tab. The tab contains a list of works that have been used and cited throughout the archive. This reminds me of what what said about bibliographies in the Werner/Voss work: “…can benefit from an expanded frame of reference. In the essay, Brown suggests ways in which bibliography and cultural studies may work together. In sum, the theoretical may help shape the material” (from page iv second paragraph). A bibliography may not be used in every situation, but it is significant for research that goes beyond the surface meaning. Without the bibliography, it would be impossible, or at least much more difficult, to trace information back to find it’s original source. The archive contains the information, but where did that information come from? With a bibliography, archives can split of the works it contains into different sources and authors. A bibliography is just a a sub archive of all of the works original sources!
