01 Aug 12 ALA Connect redesign goes live tonight (8/1)

We’re excited to announce that the ALA Connect redesign is finally going live. As part of the 2012 redesign of the ALA Connect interface, we’ve moved some things around, added shortcuts to make it faster to get places, and changed some labels to make it easier to figure out where to start.

We don’t want to take the site down during the day while we implement the new templates, so we’ll begin at 6:00 pm CDT tonight (August 1). During the implementation, the site will be unavailable and a “maintenance mode” message will display.

We expect access to be restored with the new design around 8:00 pm CDT, but we’ll post an “all clear” announcement at when everything is done.

The following help documents are now publicly available in the “Help” community on Connect.

The Member Chair FAQ at has been updated, and a new version of the Staff Liaison FAQ is being uploaded in to the KM System.

We can’t wait to hear your feedback about the new version, so don’t be shy – let us know what you think about the new design.
