The Social History Portal is still alive and expanding. In February 2017 the IALHI Board has agreed on funding a new project that will give the portal database a full makeover. This will also allow IALHI members to link their data sets and online catalogues to the portal in a much more accessible way. Presently MINT software is already online and available to data providers. A hands-on workshop will be organized on 8 September prior to this year's IALHI Conference in Ghent. The workshop by Erhan Tuskan (IISH) will explain and demonstrate the use and full potential of the MINT interface to the Social History Portal.
