Descriptions of collections and partners make it possible for users to browse The Portal to Texas History and the UNT Digital Library using the "Explore" feature. Well-crafted descriptions help you showcase your institution or department and attract users to your most interesting and important materials. In order to keep descriptions web-friendly, consistent, and working well with our interfaces, please follow these basic guidelines for their construction.

Collections

To facilitate browsing, each collection should have a short description and a representative image (collection icon). Collections may also have an additional long description providing greater detail about the collection and its context. 

Partners

Partners may be institutions, departments, or individual collectors.  Each partner should have a short description and may also have an additional long description providing more background.
