The PocketKnowledge Viewer project designed and developed an image viewer
for the image collections of the Gottesman Libraries housed in PocketKnowledge. The Viewer lets you preview images as a list of thumbnails, as a text based list or as single images in both a "slideshow" and "non-slideshow" format. The Viewer maintains pocket categorization but lets you organize within a pocket by date, title and artist/photographer.
The PK VIewer includes an auto-play slideshow with controls so you can see what you want, at the speed and the order in which you want it. To enhance the viewing experience there is a "hide navigation" button that will hide everything that is not the image and the description of the piece. All of these are on a black background that makes all the images really pop!
The search feature lets you search across all pockets and gives you results that are relevant with a custom ranking system. The search results give you a preview of the image so you're not just receiving text results
You can now download individual files in low or medium resolution. If you would like to download high resolution versions you can contact the Library to get permission.
