Using the Archives

The Log Digital Archives is powered by Omeka, a popular online archival database program. Omeka can be intimidating to first users, so we'll guide you through some of the features. You can also consult the guide to doing searches here in the Omeka user manual. 

To access the full layout of the Log Digital Archives' records, select the Browse Collections tab. If you wish to read a back issue of the Log, you will find them in the Seafarers Log Issues collection in 10-year increments. You can then scroll through the pages until you find the issue that you want. Open the item, and then click on the PDF to get a full screen view.
