It’s alive! As you have probably noticed by now - IASSIST’s new website has been launched. This is the fourth IASSIST website if one does not count the separate membership site iassistdata.info. Before taking a closer look at the new site, let’s take a quick look back at IASSIST’s website history. IASSIST first ventured into the World Wide Web during the membership year 1994-1995. But prior to this there had already been IASSIST Gopher!
Welcome to the new (May, 2010) IASSIST website, based on Drupal open source technology and hosted by LIS-host. The new logo and website artwork was commissioned by the Publications Chair, Walter Piovesan, and done by Josh Laidlaw, from British Columbia. Harrison Dekker, from University of California-Berkeley, is our ‘drupal guru’ who has done the lion’s share of the work, porting over the old content and setting up the new format.
