JAN. 22'The State Department last week announced the launch of a revamped Web site, at state.gov, organized around a database-driven structure.

After conducting usability studies, the Bureau of Public Affairs decided to reorganize the home page into nine sections. It will have a Highlights section and a link to the database of daily materials. All materials from the Bush administration will become part of the database.

The old Web site, at www.state.gov, which drew about a million hits each week, will remain intact as an electronic archive of materials dated prior to Jan. 20, at www.state.gov/index.html. It stores information dating back to the early 1990s and also archives the former Arms Control and Disarmament Agency's site.
