Hi all, it’s Justine here. Welcome to the newly tweaked City Making History blog, which I’ve rejigged and updated slightly to better reflect the archives service as a whole and where we are today, moving on from the original format of this blog as an online diary for the City Making History project.
All the original content and your comments are still here, we’ve just got a fresh look and more accurate information on the services we have going on at the moment.
I hope you like it, I think the new twitter panel down the side is a nice addition as it gives a proper look at our tweets without you needing to have a twitter account. Shiny. It’s also more easy to see who has written which post by looking at our names and job titles in the yellow tags on the left side of the screen – if you want to read posts by one person for example, just click their name for a list to choose from.
The eagle eyed among you may notice that the new design ties in with the new Explore York website, over at www.exploreyork.org.uk, with our signature light blue colour. Now we are a separate organisation from CYC we have our own website and branding that you’ll start to see more of around York as we update our buildings and services. Every household in York should have received a leaflet talking about the transfer with lots of photos so hopefully you’ll have an idea of who we are and what we are doing. The website will soon be updated to include lots of information on the new community benefit society and how you can be a member, so keep an eye out.
Thanks for following the blog for the past (nearly) two years, I hope you like the new design, just let me know if you come across any broken links or oddments and I’ll fix them as I tidy up the loose ends next week. Going forward there is going to be a post a week from one of the ALH archive team, and maybe a few sneaky extra ones when we have something we’re burning to share and can’t wait our turn. Have a nice weekend in the sun, and I’ll see you again soon.
