      Researchers from a wide swath of disciplines will make good use of this
      site, which offers integrated access to well over one million research
      resources held by the Smithsonian Institution's libraries, archives, and
      associated research units. The SIRIS gateway features six large combined
      catalogs: Libraries, Archives & Manuscripts, Art Inventories, Juley
      Photographic Collection, Research Bibliographies, and Smithsonian
      Chronology. Users may search either the combined catalogs or the fourteen
      individual sub-catalogs that comprise them. Short descriptions and contact
      information for the related archive are provided for all the catalogs.
      Search options include keyword, creator, title, and subject. Beginning
      users will appreciate the site's generous search help. The Smithsonian has
      also begun to integrate multimedia resources into the SIRIS catalogs,
      including JPEG images, .avi videos, and links to related Websites.
