April 2017 - Volume 1, Issue 4



Stacks is proud to unveil its new brand. Not only has the Stacks icon changed, but we have introduced a new partner to our logo, EBSCO Information Services. This revised look demonstrates the strong partnership between the two companies. We have also introduced a new branding element. These mountainous shapes are an homage to the location of our offices at the doorstep to Canada’s Rocky Mountains (and can be seen on our newsletter header).


Looking for a refresher on ‘Theme’? How about a quick review of ‘Analytics’? Stacks Academy will provide you with a quick look into the Stacks platform including features and integrations as well as tips and tricks.


Have questions? Need help? Have an answer? 'Stacks Support' provides the latest information on platform updates, an ever-expanding list of FAQs, and a Forum that plays host to community and expert information exchange.
