    12. 12. Goals of the Project<br />Improve user interface – speed and functionality<br />Permanent links<br />From MARBL to Emory-wide resources for archives and manuscript collections<br />MARBL finding aids > EmoryFindingAids<br /> ><br />
    13. 13. Consistency in design, navigation, function and message is the key to this. Departments and school sites should reflect individual flavor and character within guidelines that users will recognize as "Emory.”<br /><br />Your site may be Emory's only chance to make a lasting impression on many visitors. It's important that all our sites look and feel like they belong to the same institution.<br />
