Comments invited on Library Web site redesign

The Library’s redesigned web site is ready for viewing in a “beta” version (on campus only)! The goal of the redesigned site is to bring more resources to the front and reduce the amount of searching and clicking. Take a look, and let us know what you think. Give feedback using the online form

The new design has several improvements:

  • McGoogan Library News, ‘About Us’, Research Help, and Services are now available on the Home Page
  • Research Help, the library’s custom research portals, are now available in a drop down by group format (COD, CON, COP, etc)
  • A navbar has been applied across all .html pages to help users more easily naviage the site

Input from the campus community has been incorporated into the design and is still invited, so please let us know your opinions.
