Question: If you could personalize your experience of NARA’s research Web pages and online catalog with a customized user account, what features would it include and how would they help you?
Our latest ARC update included a new feature called “My List,” which allows users to temporarily collect, print and email descriptions. These lists can be viewed and added to as long as the ARC session is not closed or allowed to idle for 30 minutes (at which point all collected information is cleared.) While we’ve been really pleased with this new functionality, we know that there’s a lot of room for improvement. For instance, it would be great if researchers could save their lists from one session to the next. What other suggestions would you offer for your ideal customized ARC and website experience?
