Find & Connect Web Resource Newsletter December 2012

Posted on 18 December 2012 by

The December 2012 issue of the Find & Connect web resource newsletter contains snapshots from the state-based historians about the latest news and updates on all the state and territory websites. There’s an article about the Prime Minister’s announcement of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. As things progress in 2013, we will keep our stakeholders up to date on this important issue. Sarah Green also reports on the results of useability testing undertaken earlier this year. The web resource team is looking forward to acting on recommendations in the new year, to make it easier for users to locate what they’re looking for on Find & Connect.

The team will be out of the office between Monday 24 December and Wednesday 2 January 2013. The inbox for our feedback emails will not be checked during this time and there may be a delay in responding in the new year. We want to thank all of you for your contributions to the project this year, and wish you a safe, relaxing and happy holiday period!
