New PRS website

The following announcement has recently been sent around to many in the UK Higher Education establishment, specifically those working in Philosophy and Religious Studies. It relates to a new website for PRS, the Subject Centre for Philosophical and Religious Studies in the Higher Education Academy:

We are very pleased to reveal our new website for the Subject Centre.

The new site includes greatly improved searching and resource retrieval, resources catalogued by discipline specific categories, event listing for all the PRS disciplines, a new interface and design, improved accessibility for all users, a range of format choices and new information from external sites on the home page. It also incorporates the means to extract information and resources to embed in your own website (RSS).

Some aspects of the site are still under development and we need your feedback before the full launch. As a result, the site is currently undergoing user-testing, and we are very interested in your views and any suggestions for improvements as part of the development. There is an on-line form available for feedback and comments.

The new site is available as a link from the current site (home page):

We look forward to hearing from you.
The new site has several attractive features, including a right hand margin delivering news and jobs of interest from (for example) the BBC News site and the website. There appears to be an RSS feed, but I can't seem to pick it up, though, at the moment.
