ASERL Friends:

In 2011, ASERL launched its first shared online collection, "Civil War in the 
American South."  The site initially was housed on servers at UGA, but then 
largely transitioned to DPLA when it came online.  After discussion with our 
partners, in December 2020 ASERL decided not to renew the AmericanSouth.org 
domain name - it was receiving near-zero traffic, as users have been accessing 
the content via DPLA rather than our portal.

Cancelling the domain name seemed like a no-brainer decision at the time.  
But... in the past few weeks someone has purchased our 'old' domain name and 
launched an online gambling site.  It's definitely not us, and there is nothing 
we can do about this - we no longer own the domain.

HOWEVER, if your library had links pointing to our old domain, please be sure 
to update them to american-south.galileo.usg.edu.  Note that this site will be 
taken down sometime in the next year to complete the transition to DPLA.

Apologies if anyone got waylaid by the change in web addresses.  Please let me 
know any questions.

Thank you.
