Our Friend IRMA

IRMA has been updated with additional articles about various subjects.  There are a few minor enhancements: we rearranged the tabs on the "Browse" page to indicate what the articles are actually about.  For instance, under "Diesel Locomotives" the tabs list the titles: "Early Diesel Engines", "Streamliners", and so on.  And under Links, the links now have titles indicating what you're linking to, rather than just the URL

There's one known issue: under the "Visit" category we added a campus map, courtesy of Pete Schmidt.  But you can't zoom it up, so it's not very useful.  We have this figured out, though, and it'll be fixed in the next release.

Meanwhile we're hoping to have signs put up soon at the Museum to tell visitors about this new app.  Enjoy!

Good work, Randy. This is a splendid feature for IRM. The signs near our entry are a very good idea. What about a banner on the IRM home page advising this feature exists? We have a lot of visitors to that site and I bet outside of members, few of the general public know that IRMA exists. I think this season it will be a good asset that might boost attendance.
