The new library website has been in place for over two months now, and the team has been busy receiving feedback, fixing bugs, adding new features, and planning ahead. We have established a support contract with Chapter Three, the same firm that engineered the site initially, to provide us with a fixed number of support hours each month. Within that allocation of support hours we first tackle critical bug fixes and then attempt to add new features to enable better service and to support content creators in their work.
