New Center's Website
We are happy to introduce a new website of the Center for Urban History!
The website has a regular address but a new look and structure. We tried hard to make our new "online home" convenient and easy to read for any visitor, regardless of their intentions or access gadgets.
From the Home Page, you can have quick access to the updates on the Center’s activities and projects, learn more about the events, add them to your calendar, and be updated on the Center’s key areas of work. Here, we are also listing the useful resources developed by our organization, and the opportunities for researchers from the institutions and initiatives from all over the world.
You can navigate each page with the help of the Menu on top. It will offer you tips to highlight where you are on the chapter, and help you locate the useful pieces of information.
In all sections and pages, we share useful and detailed info for online visitors – conference programs, syllabi of training courses, videos, and galleries of events, media materials, a.o.
At the same time, we also upgraded the page of the Urban Media Archive. The website’s external shell is backed up by several years of implementation and application of a new software - the Collective Access. It optimizes the work with a large data base; it allows to conveniently and safely manage the archive collections. Search, filters, viewing and navigation through the digitalized collections.
In addition, we are launching a new page for the Center’s Library based on the special software Koha. It enables a personal online profile for our users; they can easily request books online, etc. To register your account, visit our library in person and fill in a short form.
Later, we will add several new pages to the website and will keep working to upgrade and improve it. Should you have any comments on usability, or spot any errors, please, send an email to Maryana Mazurak, Center's program&communication manager: [email protected]
