Scarecrow 2.1 Update

Welcome to the progress page for Scarecrow 2.1, the project to completely revamp our website and user experience to make it even easier for everyone to access our vast catalog of physical media. The Scarecrow Community came together and generously funded this project as part of the Scarecrow 2.1 Campaign (more details about that campaign and what we’re working to accomplish here). We are currently about 40% of the way through this ambitious project. Check back for regular updates, and thanks for your generous and continued support!

We are currently about 60% of the way through this ambitious project. The focus at the moment is on the actual development of the new software, which is the biggest part of the project. It’s not the sexy, glamorous part of the project, but it is the most critical as it is where the virtual “support beams” and “load-bearing walls” are built. Most of what has been completed so far is for the back-end – what our staff will be using day-to-day.  However, the really exciting news is that the infrastructure building is far enough along that some of the Cast Iron Coding crew can now turn their attention back to the website design – the part that will have the biggest impact on you, the front end-user.  We hope to have more on this in the next update.
