“Findery enables users to find and leave notes around the world. Notes can be stories, advice, jokes, diatribes, information, memories, facts, advertisements, love letters, grocery lists and manifestos. The content of a note is only limited by your imagination. A note can be shared with the world, one to one, or only with yourself.” (From Findery’s FAQs).

The Magnes uses Findery to map its digital assets representing holdings that document the cultures of the Jews in the global diaspora. Assets are often aggregated through “notemaps,” and reflect both catalog records in the online collection database of The Magnes and their online presence through a variety of social media platforms, including Flickr, SoundCloud, and YouTube.

You can view some examples below, or browse through the notemaps of The Magnes on
