Liberty Resource Directory (Update)

I’ve finally finished updating the Liberty Resource Directory. Here’s a summary of what I’ve done:

  1. The site has been moved from its own domain name to this Github site. This allows me free hosting and it allows me to keep LRD updated easier. In the future, there will be a “Projects” link in the sidebar of this site. For now, LRD will be listed in the “Blogs” section.
  2. I made LRD mobile friendly. Open the site up and resize your browser window. See how the tables drop under one another based on the browser size? Yeah, I thought that was cool too.
  3. The ‘People’ section has been rebuilt from the original design. It is now organized by letter rather than all being under one section. This makes finding the pages of the people you’re looking for a much easier and faster process.
  4. Many new sites have been added (listed below) and I’ll make sure to post updates here on the site in time. Updates will be posted with LRD in the projects section once it is built.
  5. I’ve obtained a sponsor! I plan on adding sponsors to each page, something relevant and worthwhile that is located on the bottom of the footer.
