Ohio Historic Inventory updated and integrated with public catalog

Brad Spurlock and staff at Hamilton have added all of the .PDFs for Butler County from the Ohio Historic Inventory to the public catalog. There are almost 2500 properties on file.

You can search addresses or names of residents, e.g.:

Problem searching Cummins and other digitized local history items

The addition of result tabs tn the catalog (Physical Items, Digital, etc.) has resulted in some problems searching for with Cummins Photo and other assets in “Portfolio” (digitized local history items.) We did not notice this in testing. I will be working with SirsiDynix to address this. In the meantime, if you are looking for Cummins photographs or city directories or any other digitized local history item, use ASSET SEARCH from the drop down menu on the left. We may rename this soon, but it will be in the same spot.
