In this second edition of the AGIA website as much of the content of the original site as possible has been preserved, whilst access to information and resources has been improved through a revised page architecture. You will now find pages dedicated to AGIA Publications and Events, as well as an expanded Resources section which includes Publications and Articles of Interest, Databases and Geoscience Groups. The Home page will be regularly updated with short news items – more detailed articles will continue to appear via AGIA’s Great Australian Byte newsletter.
The shift to a WordPress platform for the website was driven by pragmatism. The easy-to-use back-end broadens the pool of people able to update the website – those without any experience of writing code can navigate their way around WordPress quite effectively (although a little HTML knowledge is handy!).
The ephemeral nature of the internet means that occasionally you may encounter dead links. If you find yourself at a virtual dead end please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org with as much detail as possible, and every effort will be made to update the link.
Acknowledgment and thanks are extended to Ernie Laidlaw who created the first edition of the AGIA website – it is that foundation upon which this site is built. Thanks also to AGIA’s National Committee for their suggestions and feedback during the construction of the new website.
