New website launched!

With one single act of pure bravado, trumpeted by some OCPHS board members as “sheer lunacy”, by others as “relevant to 2011”, and by still others as “how do I get to it on my phone again?” – we’ve launched a new website.

The new site has been “in the planning stages” for nearly four years and replaces a site that was…pretty much like this one, but it’s now prettier and hopefully easier to use.

OCPHS volunteers proof the new website.
In all seriousness, we hope to bring some of the work of our volunteers to the public using the new site. Coming soon to the site is a Card Catalog section, where we’ll be publishing indexes to our collection. These indexes have been in development for quite some time, and we hope will be a valuable finding aid for researchers.

We’ll be adding (back) our online store, offering some of the books and other items for sale to the public. And we’ll be adding other things: a wishlist of items we need here at Pine Grove, and news about our fundraising goals.

We hope you find the site useful.  Please tell your friends about it.

 

In the meantime, there’s work to do…

The OCPHS Board takes a class in website management.
