A catalogue description of an object is the basic way of gathering information about its contents and form. The detailed nature of a description exerts an essential impact upon the possibility of identifying objects. In an era of digitisation there exist assorted functionalities assisting catalogue description systems, e.g. optical character recognition (OCR) for material containing a text. Consequently, the contents of objects accessible on the global web can be indexed by popular search engines. Graphic collections encounter greater difficulties as regards this type of functionality in digital publications. Etchings, photographs, and historical maps, especially those with a view or a panorama, contain a large number of elements. There emerges the problem of indexing a selected and enlarged fragment of an object, which could be the topic of a search or study conducted by users within a differed context, e.g. the appearance of buildings. A certain proposal for solving this problem is the DigiTag function (http://www.digitag.pl) based on Zoomify HTML5 publications. It makes it possible to easily generate (a double click) a unique URL address referring to a chosen fragment of the digital image. Such a link can be placed and described in one’s notes and databases or shared on social networking services. Functionality is the effect of the work performed by the authors of the Digitalizacja.pl. service based on modified Java Script libraries of the Zoomify system and the jQuery library, and making it possible to transmit the parameters (coordinates and zoom level) of a given image on the URL address. An example of an address: http://www.bibliotekacyfrowa.pl/Content/29259/2449-IV.B.htm?z=100&x=5208 &y=4337&p=2449-IV.B_01; a detailed description of the parameters and a viewer to download are available on: http://www.digitag.pl
