  • Usage statistics, total and by month
  • Search, both simple (full-text) and advanced (faceted)
  • Download of both your metadata and usage stats
  • Identification of your metadata issues (if any)
  • User-centered redesign of create and manage functions
  • Responsive design (meaning users can access the site on tablets and mobile devices)
  • Tooltips and quick-reference guides, so that suggestions and explanations appear where you most need them
  • Updated outreach materials you can customize
