Readers will have noticed changes in the presentation of our news and information portals this year.
Since January, we have been testing various items of new software and modifications. This work is nearing conclusion.
The FIRE Project public access portals are beginning to display hyperlinks to related information in a new format.
In line with Project policy set at the start of the project in 1995, all established URLs will continue to operate.
This is a housekeeping operation to prepare the Project’s public access portals for system enhancements that will begin introduction from December 2013.
A key to hyperlinks formats will be added to each portal as navigation information.
