We hope you like the new look and feel of our updated website (do not worry if you do not see the updated version yet, it might take some time for the changes to roll out)! Over the past few weeks we have used this blog to give you a preview of the new site and a guide to finding our content.
As a reminder, this update includes a change to our website’s URL. You can now find our homepage at www.archives.gov/ogis. We expect that many of our pages will automatically re-direct to the updated address. If a bookmark for one of our pages no longer works, you can find most of the content from our old website by simply moving the “ogis” from the front of the URL to between backslashes and deleting “htm” from the end of the URL.
- the page for the our Contact Information will change from ogis.archives.gov/about-ogis/contact-information.htm to www.archives.gov/ogis/about-ogis/contact-information
- the webpage with information about requesting our assistance with a FOIA dispute will change from ogis.archives.gov/mediation-program/request-assistance.htm to www.archives.gov/ogis/mediation-program/request-assistance.htm
One of the most exciting aspects of this website update is that our content is now in Drupal, an open source content management system that makes our website responsive to mobile devices. Using Drupal also makes it easier for the National Archives staff to update our content.
Now we want your help to continue to improve our website! As we learn more about Drupal, we plan to integrate other features into our website and improve our content’s organization. If you have any suggestions, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting us on Twitter at @FOIA_Ombuds.
