We're pleased to announce that the NSS Web site is getting some major improvements on March 12th. The home page has been simplified by moving all links that pertain only to members to a separate MEMBERS page, which will incorporate information previously located on the "NSS Business" pages. You'll find it easier and more straightforward to navigate, and an internal search function will soon be added. As you've perhaps noticed, the login system has already been improved; instead of protecting just the front door, it secures our internal business from all directions, including from web bots and search engines. As before, log into the member-only section of the Web site with your NSS number and use your zip code as the password.
Why March 12th, you ask? Because that marks the first anniversary of the CavingNews Web site, and we're using that date to unveil a cooperative arrangement in which we host a CavingNews.com widget on our home page, and ask you to assist the site by providing local and regional caving news stories.
A third major change is that on the new Members page, there is now an archive of all NSS periodicals -- yes, all, from our inception in 1941! It's not yet quite complete, but will be very soon. You're sure to enjoy this trove of entertainment and information.
