Zoomify Update: Save & Print and Collection List

We've enhanced Zoomify functionality in the DMR to include a "Save and Print" Feature. Sometimes when users view digital maps or other images, they're only interested in a certain section. Perhaps they locate the historical site where their home now sits, or they find a tiny town of particular research interest. In those cases, users might want to save or print just that zoomed portion instead of the entire map. The "Save" button lets users do just that -- by opening a new window that allows right-clicking to save, print, or email the zoomed image.

The DMR collections that utilize Zoomify are:
Ball State Campus Maps
Campus Building Plans
The Daniel W. Hartwig Photograph Collection of Indiana Courthouses
Muncie and Delaware County Historical Maps and Atlases
Muncie Chevrolet Plant Architectural Drawings
Ostland Atlas Collection (Image shown is from this collection.)
Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps Collection
