ALA Soliciting Feedback on Website Wireframes

ALA is redesigning its website, and is soliciting feedback regarding preliminary screens, or wireframes. Input from individuals who had an opportunity to view the wireframes during the Annual Conference in Washington is also requested since a number of changes have been made to the wireframes based on feedback received during the conference.

Once you view the wireframes, there is a short survey to complete.
