AHC Begins Soft Launch of New Website April 18

For nearly two years, the Arkansas History Commission and State Archives has worked with Aristotle, a local web design agency, to give its website a new look with a more streamlined, user-friendly functionality. The newly redesigned website now has an integrated search function that makes locating records and information about collections simpler.

On April 18th, the History Commission will begin a "soft launch" of the new website in the AHC research room. We're inviting our patrons to stop in and test it out and let us know what you think! We want your feedback - your likes and dislikes, tips and suggestions, and any difficulties you might find.

The website will officially launch online to the public on June 15, which is Arkansas's Statehood Day.

We are excited to share our new, more user-friendly site with our patrons, and we look forward to your feedback.

This project is funded in part by a grant from the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council.
