Legend of icons used in the TDA

Thumbnails in the Texas Digital Archive (TDA) have an icon in the top right-hand corner indicating whether clicking the thumbnail will lead to a collection, record series, or record. Below is an example of how these icons will appear:

folder icon

This icon usually represents a collection or record series, which may have other groups of folders or records.

icon with 2 documents stacked one on top of the other

This icon represents a folder that has individual items or records within it.

icon of single document

This icon represents a single record (document, image, audio or video file) and clicking the thumbnail will open that record.

When viewing the results of a browse or search, there are four icons displayed in the top right corner of the search results screen. Below is an example of how these icons may appear on your screen:
