Why the change?Why the change?

Our hosting company required back-end changes. They rolled out a new version that was markedly different from the previous versions and as it happened not compatible with our website. We had to adapt our website to incorporate elements of this new design. The biggest changes to our website – the search box in the top right corner of every page, the ability to narrow search results, the option to add comments and tags to digital objects – are all features of our host’s upgrades. As we began to incorporate these new features, we also took the opportunity to change the structure of the website as well. These changes are meant to enable our staff to handle most of the web development work necessary to maintain and expand the website.
