NOTE TO EDITORS:
New Look, Improvements for NASA Langley Web Site
NASA Langley Research Center's public web site got a facelift on
Thursday, June 21.
The URL, or web address, of the site remains the same: < LARC Home Page>.
"We had two primary goals in redesigning the web site -- make it
more accessible for individuals with disabilities and make it
easier for everyone to use," said Michael Finneran, head of
Langley's Office of External Affairs. "Plus, we wanted a newer,
more futuristic look to reflect the NASA mission. We think
weve got all that with this new web site."
The redesign of the Langley web site coincides with the June 21
implementation of federal electronic information technology
Section 508 of The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the
Workforce Investment Act of 1998, requires that federal departments
ensure their information technologies allow individuals with
disabilities to have access to and use of information comparable to
that of persons without disabilities.
