Noticed some changes to the UKSG website..? It's been a while coming, but we've finally upgraded from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 with a little help from our friends at MyDropWizard / Roundearth. It's still a project in progress, so please bear with us and feel free to send us your comments and feedback big or small!
