New MWDL Website

New MWDL Website

We here at the MWDL are extremely excited to share with you a project that we have been working on for a few months now. We are in the final stages of completely reworking our website. Don’t worry, all your favorite historical collections are right where you left them, they just got a fresh new look! Similar to its great new look, the new website runs much smoother, and is much more mobile friendly. But if you see something you don’t like, or you find a bug with the new website, let us know! Fill out the questionnaire to give us all of your thoughts, questions, comments and concerns. We believe that these changes will have a measurably positive effect for both out partners and our users by increasing SEO and enhancing the user-experience, and we want to make sure that you enjoy these changes as much as we do.
