At the biannual meeting of ARC in Toronto, Director Laura Mandell presented “BigDIVA: Search as Research,” detailing the new visualized search tool called Big Data Infrastructure Visualization Application or BigDIVA. BigDIVA is a new way of searching the ARC Catalog that allows users to perform simple and complex searches using a simple, visual interface. The beta version of the tool is available for testing at www.bigdiva.org. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to send us an email at arc[hyphen]dh[at]tamu[dot]edu or idhmc[at]tamu[dot]edu.
