Perhaps you are confusing two different pages.... Both  American Memory
and the Learning Page changed their home  pages within days of each other.
I haven't heard any posts to this list about the AM home page, only the
Learning Page.

No matter what page you are thinking of, I'd really be interested in
learning more about how and why you find the pages less helpful.  Both the
designer of the AM page and Ursula and I listen carefully to folks on this

And I'd like you to post comments to this main list.  We always hear the
good things - we don't always get honest critiques -- and yet, that's the
only way we can make our pages more user-friendly.

Thanks, Mel, for voicing your opinion.  Tell me more.  I invite others to
also tell us more.  Our goal is to make this a service to you, and we can't
do that without your feedback.

Judy, m.h.
