Abstract: The Astrophysics Source Code Library, started in 1999, moved to a new infrastructure in 2014 with enhancements developed in response to feedback from users and publishers. With one-click author search, flexible browsing options, and a simple form-based submission process, the ASCL offers a better experience for users. Since the introduction of the new platform in mid-2014, users have submitted over 100 codes, more than in all previous years combined. The ASCL now houses information on more than 1,100 codes and its entries are increasingly used for citation, with over 17% of its entries cited, up from 7.5% in January of last year. Exciting opportunities to collaborate have been presented to the ASCL, including participation in the 3rd Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences and a request from the AAS to form a special interest group on software publishing. This poster showed some of the new capabilities of the ASCL, its growth, and recent outreach.
