Mediterranean Travel and Trade, 1300-1800

The University of Kansas' Kenneth Spencer Research Library website offers many interesting collections, including "Kansas Wildflowers", "Invertebrate Paleontology" and "Florence Nightingale Letters". Their well-executed digitized collection on "Mediterranean Travel and Trade 1300-1800" is fascinating and rather lovely, as the scans of the white/ecru book pages, documents, journals, maps, illustrations, etc. contrast well with the black background that was chosen for the website. The result is not just restful on the eyes, but also elegant, and allows for unhindered, intense study of the documents at hand. Other features that enable researchers or the intellectually curious to easily work with the materials are the "Add to Workspace" and "Export" options in the upper left and right hand corners, respectively, of an item chosen to view in more detail. The "Export" feature allows for saving, but the "Add to Workspace" allows the image to be added to one's presentations or other media. Additionally, dragging the cursor over the image allows for viewing help, viewing the image information, dragging the image, and fitting the image to the frame.
