CHDD-FUNAG releases new website
The Alexandre de Gusmão Foundation’s (FUNAG) Center for History and Diplomatic Documentation (CHDD) has just updated the layout of its website (www.funag.gov.br/chdd), using the patterns of visual identity, accessibility, and content proposed by the Secretariat for Social Communication of the Presidency of the Republic and as a way of improving its accessibility. The website’s new layout reinforces the commitment to transparency and facilitates the access to information produced by the Center, improving the navigating experience via smartphones and tablets as well. In addition to this new visual presentation – cleaner, more functional and agile – the website’s content is being revised and updated and will soon present new useful information to researchers in general.
Ambassador Gelson Fonseca Junior, who took office as head of CHDD in September, highlighted the importance of the new website to the institution: "The new tool significantly improves access to our publications. At the same time, a process was initiated to update the content available on the website, which provides a valuable assistance to researchers interested in the country’s diplomatic history."
