    This may be the wrong forum on which to post this suggestion, but I'll give it a shot anyway.

    I think it would be useful to have a link to the Tuner Technician Magazine Archives on the Journal PDFs Community page.

    Finding the Journal PDF's Community page is easy and intuitive from the myptg home page.  Finding the TTMA page is not.  With all the work being done to make these archives available, together with their usefulness, I think they ought to be made more conspicuous to a wider audience.

    I think it is the exact forum to reach the body of members who access my.ptg.org. I agree wholeheartedly. After hosting a Zoom technical for the Richmond Chapter last Monday, I regretted not being able to show them access to this Library as I too could not remember how to get there. I gave the members a walktrough of other features that they are paying good money in dues but may not know of this treasure. I did figure that for now there is a way. For now until such a time as it might be added to the present library, I go to my.ptg.org and log in. At the home page I click on All Communities. The Tuner Tech Magazine Archives link is found on page 12 at the bottom I had to scroll to. I clicked on the Libraries button and it brought up the entire archives. I opened the 1913 folder that listed all the pdfs of the Journal for its first year in publication. When I went to click My Communities instead of All Communities, it was automatically added so that now I can open up my communities and the portal is right there accessable by a single keystroke. No sense in waiting for something that may never happen. Next Zoom meeting I host I will bring this up. For now everyone was thrilled with a few of the PTG Academy videos I brought up for everyone to watch. I would encourage every chapter who has not done so recently, to consider adding a walk-through presentation of the online portals we access here and now at my.ptg.

    I'll contact Barb Cassaday about this.

    BTW, the PT Journals from 1958->most of 1963 have been uploaded to the Archives. The folder is "Piano Technicians Journals 1958-1978"

    I see a link has been added.  Thank you!  Navigating to the material, however did not present as an intuitive process.  I was  so forward as to post some words of explanation for the process, but what I've left there looks really clumsy.  Is there a better way to make things plain?
