Functions (available since December 2009):
- “Statistical information” – see and/or track item page views & file downloads
- “Audiovisual streaming” – improved multimedia access

Who Re-designed the Site?
UBC Library staff worked closely with the Atmire company (atmire.com) to re-design the cIRcle website. We would like to thank our Atmire consultants, UBC Library Systems & Information Technology and the many UBC Library colleagues, supporters, and cIRcle end-users for their contributions.
