What’s New?

Posted Dec. 10, 2019

A Whole New Site

The launch of the all-new anatomy.org follows the renaming and rebranding of the American Association of Anatomists as the American Association for Anatomy in August 2019. This website runs on a modern, cloud-based platform designed to give users a more cohesive experience. It is fully responsive, meaning you can view and use the site on any device.

Member Access

Members can access exclusive content by logging in – you’ll need to use the new login information you created when renewing your membership in Fall 2019. (If you haven’t done so yet, renew now!) If you need to reset your login information, just click “Forgot Username?” on the Login page.

Navigating the New Site

Like the old site, the new site uses drop-down menus. While you’ll find many (if not most) things in a familiar place, some items have moved. To explore this new site, click on any of the main menu items or the drop-down items.

Here are a few notable changes:

  • The Resources menu is streamlined to primarily include teaching-related resources. As a result, Careers gets its own menu.
  • The Press Room, Newsletters, and Journals are all combined under News & Journals.
  • The About Us menu is streamlined, with various Policies moved to the footer and position statements moved into Advocacy.

A Work in Progress

Like any digital property, the AAA website is not a “finished product.” You will find that some content has not yet been populated on the new site, such as archived webinars and newsletters, detailed awards information, and other areas where you see “coming soon” text. We will continue transcribing and publishing this content as quickly as possible.

Future Improvements

In early 2020, we intend to implement Single Sign-On (SSO) for all of our digital properties as well as Search capability.

Reporting Bugs and Errors

Broken links, missing images, etc., are par for the course in launching a new website. Please report bugs and errors here.

Data processing policy (Dec. 11, 2019)

Within the membership renewal portal, you will need to accept the data processing policy, which is unchanged from our old system, but needs to be re-recorded in our new system.
