While every effort is being made to seamlessly integrate GIGI with the AAS online catalog, they are two completely different tools and modes of searching. For instance, in the AAS Online catalog a search for a specific newspaper title will yield the full series results, whereas searching in GIGI may only provide an article or two. By contrast, individual newspaper articles are not cataloged in the AAS Online catalog (and likely, never will be).
Unlike the AAS Online catalog “Builder Search Option” not everything in GIGI is available to search by keywords which will search across all fields. If you know a specific title or author for an image, you would be best doing an “Advanced” search.
Many times the title of the image is also the subject (the portrait of Abby Kelley Foster, for instance).
Keywords also include the AAS Subject headings. There is no distinct field for subjects. Keywords also double as a media for the items (book, oil paintings, lithograph, etc.)
At present, there are items which have no metadata attached. If you suspect (or hope) an item is in GIGI and cannot locate it, you may try searching the Bibliographic ID Number (which is on the Voyager record).
If you come across items you would like for a publication, or need a higher-resolution image of, please email the Rights and Reproductions Department at email@example.com
