ACUNS needed to a functional and intuitive website to serve existing members and attract new ones, and they needed it fast: they had just graduated from being a project of a coalition of universities to being their own 501c3, so didn’t have a website of their own.

We worked quickly to build a website that would allow the new organization to open registration to new members, and allow the re-registration of existing members. Cornershop’s team built  the site using the Blocksy theme in just a few weeks. We configured the Restrict Content Pro plugin and Gravity Forms for member registration and created a pass-through for members to access Brill Publisher, which makes it easy for members to find resources and connect with other professionals.
