24 February 2015: High website traffic yesterday, Books pages almost completed

On 23 February 2016, we had our second highest day for website traffic with 29,255 visits.  We are nearing completion of our new Books pages, with about ~1300 pathology related books, sorted by publisher, specialty and date posted.  You can also search by author and words in the title.  The books have all been converted to the new format, but we are verifying that we haven't missed any books, and that the system is operating properly.  The new books pages should be available by the USCAP '16 meeting in mid March.
