For many people, a visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario starts with a visit to www.ago.net. To ensure you enjoy a more intuitive, informative and accessible website experience, we are in the process of redesigning www.ago.net. The first release of the new design was launched today. It is the result of collaboration with Devlin eBusiness Architects. Click here for more information about the AGO/Devlin partnership.
The project began early in 2008 with community consultations, comparative research and user testing. A new architecture and user interface were developed and are being launched today in the spirit of a public beta site. We welcome your feedback as we seek to continually improve the site and help you to plan your visit to the new AGO. The site will continue to be released in phases over the coming months. Some of the features we are working to introduce include page-level comments, RSS feeds, sharing, feedback as well as a new event calendar. Many people have asked for web access to images of AGO’s digital collections. This is something that we are working towards for early 2009.
We’ll continue to post updates as this project progresses. Stay tuned and let us know what you think.
