Restructuring of our web presence

Dear colleagues,

NDRD will be renovating in the next couple of months to strengthen and streamline our web site

In this respect, we hope to reorient our wide-ranging content as a means to address the following objectives:


Create so called special research focus microsites to provide relevant information on a specific topic and our ongoing research in this regard for our target audience. 


To radically transform our search function through enhanced software and metadata


Include a much larger set of resource directories


Eventually include incorporate social media and multimedia


Finally please note that NDRD is entirely based on volunteerism and everything that we do, including programming our website, requires extra time as well as the acquisition of further skills during weekends and therefore may take a bit longer.


Thank you for your patience as we try our very best!




Participate in our Public Call for Nominations for the NDRD Council
Deadline for nominations will be Nov. 1, 2006 (24:00 EST)
