Academic Pricing Now Available
We’ve recently introduced an academic pricing tier for use with short term student projects. For just $99 a month, you can use RuskinARC for your student project at the full Premium level access. Just let us know how many months you’ll need it and we’ll get it all set up for you. Also, if you or the city or historic society decide that you want to keep the project longer, we can convert you to a full fledged long term account with the flip of a switch, so you won’t have to worry about losing all of your hard work. Contact us today to learn more.
Image Reordering Coming Soon
Soon, you’ll have the ability in RuskinARC to reorder the images posted on a resource. This will let you define which image will show as the first one on a resource instead of just having them ordered by when you uploaded them. It was an often requested feature and now it’s finally added. On each image on a resource in edit mode, you’ll now see an up arrow button next to the caption. Just click that and the image will move up one spot. Easy reordering!
Look for that to get added this weekend when we roll out a new version.
Saving Homes at Risk for Demolition
John Poole, who has been doing some interesting surveys of homes on his blog, A Preservationist’s Technical Notebook, has recently written anopen letter concerning the demolition plans for the Thomas Sanford House in Milford, CT. As we talked about in our last newsletter, I think public awareness is one of the most important tools for someone trying to preserve an historic structure. Don’t wait until after the fact, be like John and do it now. We wish him luck.
