The “Try It Now” feature allows us to capture feedback from both you and your users, so please, tell us what you think.

Timing and Next Steps

  • From now until December you will be able to request to move to the new interface.
  • December 2016:  Artemis Literary Sources is being permanently retired and all customers yet to make the change will be migrated to the new interface. No action is required in this case, but we encourage you to upgrade prior to December.
