You can search DIGIE's collection of images and videos simply by entering a word or words into the TEXT SEARCH box.

Or you can filter the collection by using the drop-down boxes for TIME or THEME (or both) and/or you can search by place. An AREA is a large section of El Paso like the Northeast, Central, or Lower Valley. A COMMUNITY is more specific. Any combination of these, or a single choice, works fine. Experiment a little to narrow your search down if you want.

When you get a page of results, you can sort them in different orders by using the SORT BY drop down menu. Look at the bottom of the page to see if there are more results waiting for you.
