Libraries home page is redesigned

University Libraries home page is newly designed for greater functionality. 'Library Search' which provides access to all our holdings is prominent in the main section of the page.

Choices to narrow your searches to the main categories of Books and Media, Articles, or Textbooks are easy to use. Prominent categories of resource materials are linked in the gold band: Databases and Guides, Journals, Course Reserves, and Ask Us contact information.

Driven by usage patterns the page layout makes it easier to find the pages you already go to. There is a shorter link set. Also, the designs functionality includes the University's responsive design parameters to work with smaller screens, especially phones. So you can take your library with you and use on all portable devices.

Another feature is that news and graphics for the libraries now appear on the home page with event information posted on the lower right.
