Hello ArchivesSpace members,

Searchable archives are now available for the LYRASIS-hosted ArchivesSpace Users Group and Member Representatives listservs. To access the search feature, go to the main web page for the respective list (http://lyralists.lyrasis.org/mailman/listinfo/archivesspace_users_group in the case of the Users Group) and click on the link for the archives near the top. You'll now see some search options at the top of the archives page. While you can still browse the archives by a particular month, you can now also search across all of the postings. I recommend using the "Long" format as your default for viewing the results as it provides more context for message content and date of posting.

It is a known issue that images indicating relevance and search result page numbers are appearing as broken icons in some browsers. The results themselves are consistent across browsers. Also, as the search index is usually rebuilt each evening, anything posted on a particular day will usually not be found via search until the next day, though you can still find it by browsing the most recent month of postings.

We know that so much helpful information is shared on the ArchivesSpace lists and hope this added functionality for the lists will be useful to you in working through it. The searching is a work in progress, though, so please let us know what you think. We have and will continue to provide feedback to LYRASIS about the performance and desired enhancements, and it is very helpful to hear from those to whom this is important. Thanks so much to all who helped us make a strong case for searchability of the listserv archives, and to the staff in LYRASIS' Technology Services who made it a reality.
