16 June 2019    At Last!
It took somewhat longer than expected, but the move to a new server is finally complete and the Beer Stein Library is now officially under the control of the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA). As regular Library visitors will quickly note, at this point little has changed other than we are now able to return to more normal updating practices, so “What’s New” notifications of new listings and other announcements will begin again tomorrow morning. Of course, the frequency and quantity of those listings are substantially dependent on new information coming to us from end-users. There’s still plenty of room for growth, but that will only happen with your assistance, so if you’re able, please take the time to become a contributor.

Volunteers willing to apply their knowledge and skills to building and administering the Library are also being sought. If you think you can help we’d love to hear from you. Send us an email expressing your interest to [email protected].

As for what the future holds for the BSL, change is pretty much a certainty as AMOCA begins to figure out how to best coordinate the direction and content of the Library with the goals and objectives of the Museum. Discussions have barely begun regarding what those changes might entail, but enhancing the end-user experience will always be a priority consideration. Watch this space for change announcements as we move into the future.
