"We are excited because we've revamped the interface (hopefully) making it more user-friendly and adding new features. With the membership and access to eHRAF we provide quite a bit of support for librarians, faculty, students, and researchers. For example, we provide informational group sessions (in form of online webinars) for librarians to tell them which disciplines and courses can use eHRAF and to give an overview of eHRAF. We help faculty to incorporate eHRAF (see for some online student exercises) into their course curriculum and often provide customized webinars for classes. We also like to stay in touch with researchers who can email us their research topics, and depending on the topic, we provide search strategies to use eHRAF's cultures and subjects in getting the most out of eHRAF."
