If you’ve visited this blog before, you might be doing a double-take.
The Web Services team here at the Library (who are doing some simply amazing things) has given the blog a fresher look and new functionality. First, there’s a cleaner, more aesthetic look to it, and I like how the collections are now highlighted in the banners.
In the sidebar, we’ve added links to our archives. Hard to believe we’ve been at this for more than two years now! There’s also a new box called “Find Us on the Web,” which links to the growing number of social-media sites on which we have a presence.
Among other changes, they’ve upgraded to the newest version of WordPress, which makes it a lot easier for us to bring posts to you. And “under the hood,” there’s one especially significant change: The new back-end supports multiple users, which means the door is now open to additional blogs on LOC.gov.
I usually don’t show any ankle, but I’m excited to report that the Library has approved the addition of a second blog! I won’t give any more away than that for now, but it will be launching soon, and I want to give it its full due at that time. But I think you’ll enjoy it.
So what do you think of the changes?
