Use Google to Search the VRoma Image Archive

NB: This is a temporary measure until we can fix the WebGlimpse search engine. The Google search won't take you directly to the relevant line in the index pages, so it will be necessary to use "Find" to search on the specific index page. If you click on the Images tab, you will see thumbnails of some of the images, but clicking on the thumbnail will take you back to the index page where you will have to use "Find" to get to the individual entry you are seeking. In addition, not all the thumbnails show up on the Images tab, and some incorrect thumbnails appear there as well.

Search the VRoma Image Archive

Image Search is temporarily unavailable. Unfortunately the search engine has ceased to function because of a technical glitch. We are sorry for the inconvenience and working to correct the problem.

Instructions: Type in a keyword (one word is best, since Glimpse will only find appearances of the exact phrase if more than one word is used) and click Submit. When the results page appears, click directly on the links to specific line numbers (not on the Images Index Name). This will take you to the line in which your keyword appears; you may have to scroll up one or two lines to see the link to the actual image. If you would rather browse through the Archive using the index pages of images submitted by individuals, click here (see also VRoma Working for You).
