NGS 2012 Update — Please join us in Cincinnati

If you are going to be in Cincinnati next week at the National Genealogical Society annual conference stop by and say hello! We’ll be with Accessible Archives in booth 436 at this event. Be sure to swing by to chat.

Accessible Archives has also created an easy way to follow all of the Official Bloggers. As they say on their site:

National Genealogical Society has published its list of Official Bloggers at their conference blog. Conference bloggers provide a wonderfully valuable service in their role as reporters and distillers of information. Following the official bloggers when attending a large event like NGS 2012 is like recruiting a couple dozen personal assistants and note-takers to be in all the places you cannot.
If you cannot be there at all, the bloggers can give you an inside look at what you are missing as it happens and maybe inspire you to set aside time and resources to attend next year.

To subscribe to the entire list in a single click, go to: Easily Follow the NGS 2012 Official Bloggers

You belong at your library — National Library Week is April 8-14

National Library Week, 2012It’s less than two weeks until National Library week, to be held April 8-14, 2012. National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It’s a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use.

So, let’s not take these wonderful institutions for granted. Every day, they open their doors to all kinds of people and support all kinds of activities. You belong at your library, before, during and after National Library Week.

To see ideas on how to participate, visit the National Library Week page on @your library, the campaign to save America’s libraries.

Join us to help save a life

American Cancer Society Relay For LifeOnce again, we come to you and ask you for your ongoing support to help stop cancer.

It is impossible to wake up each day and not remember the devastation we have felt when we heard that cancer had touched our lives, our family’s lives, our friends’ lives, even our pets’ lives. It is impossible to not want to fight this disease with every ounce of strength we have so that we can watch future generations celebrate nothing but recovery.

Today, we know that there is hope, and that death is no longer a certainty. We know that millions of brave men and women all over the world are fighting and surviving cancer. Research has come light years, and continues to advance daily. All of us have a vital role to play in this fight; we must raise funds so that some day when we hear the diagnosis cancer it is no worse than a cold. We will survive!

Follow this link to donate and help to stop this dreaded disease.

International Women’s Day

Join us in supporting International Women’s Day, celebrated around the world on March 8. Thousands of events take place worldwide to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women and to highlight what still needs to be done. The United Nations’ theme this year is “Empower Rural Women — End Hunger and Poverty”.

…there is a long way to go before women and girls can be said to enjoy the fundamental rights, freedom and dignity that are their birthright and that will guarantee their well-being. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the world’s rural areas. Rural women and girls — to whom this year’s International Women’s Day is devoted — make up one quarter of the global population, yet routinely figure at the bottom of every economic, social and political indicator, from income and education to health to participation in decision-making. — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

A resource to stay up to date on issues of women’s empowerment is Womenwatch, run by the UN, which provides information, news feeds and resources on the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women throughout the United Nations system.

Unlimited Priorities develops a new Accessible Archives website

Unlimited Priorities has developed a new website for Accessible Archives. Like our own website, we implemented and will manage this one using a content management system (CMS). Unlimited Priorities continuously assesses the state-of-the-art in Content Management Systems for the development of websites for small and medium sized companies. For Accessible Archives, we chose WordPress, which presently drives over 59 million websites world wide, including many large organizations, like CNN, TechCrunch, NBC Sports and CBS Radio. Users also include millions of small to medium sized organizations. In fact, we use WordPress to manage our own website.

Using a CMS makes it much easier and faster to develop and manage a user and social-media friendly site that complies with all current standards and, importantly is very search-engine friendly as well. Issues that proved to be difficult, time-consuming and expensive using traditional website development methods are simple and quick when using a content management system.

An additional issue that organizations often face is the migration of large amounts of existing content. For the Accessible Archives site, the use of a CMS made this straightforward and importantly enabled us to modify the structure of existing content to comply with current web standards.

Besides being cost effective to develop, maintain and update, using a modern CMS ensures the site will remain current as new standards are developed, ensures that new technologies can be easily integrated, enables integration with popular social media, ensures that both current and future search engine standards will be followed and makes it easy to incorporate new design ideas, content areas and added functionality.
