The Library now provides an outline view of encoded finding aids for all Library divisions from its EAD search page. This view using HTML frames is the default option for finding aids on the search page because of the highly contextual nature of these documents, which are best understood when the table of contents is available on-screen at all times. The use of frames also permits large documents to be "chunked", which allows the browser to retrieve only the portion of the finding aid needed at the time. A table of contents list links to a view which displays a navigation frame with individual sections of the finding aid; the sections may be searched and printed separately. This view will load quickly.
