Welcome to the new home of the ORB on the web!
The ORB has moved to its new home at the College of Staten Island, City
University of New York.

There is also a new search engine on most of the pages which
should facilitate finding what you want quickly.
Your old bookmarks should work, with an important change:

case letters and that you remove the old address "orb.rhodes.edu"
from the path. For example, an address of one of the internal ORB
bookmarks should look like this:

so if you are having trouble locating a page, it is probably due to
the fact that you are missing either "the-orb.net" or your filenames
have upper case letters.
The new Editor is Kathryn Talarico, who can be reached at Editor@the-orb.net
