Website Development
The MALL website was originally developed by the Internet Applications Committee, chaired by Nina Platt, in 1995-96. Original HTML coding was done by Nina Platt and Roger Skalbeck. Templates were provided to committee liasons, who then helped collect content for inclusion. Many MALL members contributed.

The current website, featuring the new MALL logo, was developed by the MALL 2000-2001 Internet Applications Committee, chaired by Janet Sheets. Actual construction and rollout has been accomplished during Fall, 2001, by the committee chaired by Aimée Blatz.
