Is anyone else having problems seeing Images of Broadsides on the Bodleian web pages.
I can get to everything except the actual Image of the Broadside - it just shows a small blue square instead of the Broadside.
Is it a problem with my computer of the web site?
http://www.bodley.ox.ac.uk/ballads/ballads.htm - using Browse and Search!

nice to know about this resource, THANK YOU! - I've just started
to explore it. I was able to see images of the broadsides.

Best wishes, Thomas.

Tim,
We had this conversation about a week ago.
The problem then was that we were trying to use the connection in our favourites window. The site has now been revamped and you need to reset it in your favourites. Try Googling the site, check that search and browse are working and then resave it in your favourites.

Steve - I have tried that and it still does not work.
I can still search, etc. but just cannot see the Image of the broadsides I am interested in.
Can it have something to do with what software ie Adobe or something I don't have?

Best - Tim

RTim, finding the images is a confused mess.
First of all, the old system is still online, and it leads to that X in a blue box syndrome. Your software is OK, but trying to find the new site url and the ballads index with google leads to the old system. I think the guys at the Library deliberately set out to make access difficult.


Try this:
http://ballads.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/browse.

Thanks all - I have found that using both works, ie. find a broadside to look at via Search/Browse and then look at it (the image) on the other site using the Broadside no.!!

Thanks all Tim Radford
