The information published on the Agrarian Studies web site is duplicated on a “shadow,” text-only, site. Crossover between the two versions can be made from their respective “front doors,” or home pages. Their URLs are:
- Graphics version front door: http://www.yale.edu/agrarianstudies/real/ashome.html
- Text version front door: http://www.yale.edu/agrarianstudies/shadow/ashome.html
Most topics on this site are contained within a single, sometimes longish, page, so that the viewer can easily save or print complete information from a web browser.

The site was designed and originally constructed in 1998 on an Apple Power Macintosh 8100/110 computer. It was HTML-coded using BBEdit Lite, then the free-ware verson of the text editor from Bare Bones Software, Inc. Original graphic elements were made with Adobe Illustrator 6.0.2. In 2012 all active pages were updated from tables-based HTML coding to CSS-based coding using TextWrangler, Bare Bones Software’s current free-ware text editor, on an Apple MacBookPro (2.5Ghz QuadCore i7). The site is maintained using Coda (by Panic) and TextWrangler. Viewers running recent-vintage browsers will experience most of the modern improvements; viewers using older versions of Internet Explorer will see a simpler version.
The site was designed and constructed by:H.G. Salome of MetaGlyfix [digital graphics & typography — book design & production — web design — editorial services] USA
