The integration of digital collections into SearchWorks means that items from collections containing digital material can be discovered in the course of searching and browsing through the totality of Stanford's library catalog. Prior to this major SearchWorks enhancement, digital collections were only available either through special digital collections web sites, such as or through PURL (persistent URL) pages for individual objects, such as this 18th century map of California as an Island.
