Web Survey about redesign of ASCSA Homepage

Many thanks to all who participated in this survey, which is now closed

Thank you very much for your helpful comments about the ASCSA website when the planning of its redesign started last September.

The web consultancy company,, is now in the final stages of designing the site, and we would like your opinion about two different versions of the homepage that they have prepared.

Please click here to see these options and to complete a short online survey. It should only take 3 minutes.

The results of this survey, which is also being distributed to other parts of the School community, will be reported at the Managing Committee meeting on May 12. The comments and votes received will decide what the redesigned School website will look like.

With many thanks,

Chuck Jones, Head of the Blegen Library ce-jones at
