Music and Entertainment History

Touring Entertainment

Touring Entertainment

The Professional Touring Entertainment Industry Archive was created in 1995 to document the history of touring entertainment companies and those venues and arenas in which acts are presented. 

Do you think the contact info in the side box should be present on all pages, only the section head pages, or just the home page? I'm leaning towards only he home page, unless a section head page has a special person to contact outside of the ref line, like with the Music coll and John. In a previous comment, I suggested putting our logo in the side box on each page, along with a link to the website, a link to register/log in, and our hours but maybe that's too much. On the other hand, it would be handy to have it readily available for people to click on. I think we should have it on the section head pages and the home page, at least. There - I made a decision! I'm so proud!      Yeah, I think having all that on every page might be a bit much. I'll keep it to the home page and section head pages and I'll add the logo and web link. Do you think it might be enough to have the hours/address and Aeon login on just the home page?
