Library relaunches its Web site
Posted January 31, 2002; 12:02 a.m.
On Monday, Jan. 28, the University's library launched a redesigned version of its Web site .
The goal of this redesign project was a more intuitive, flexible, and attractive home page which would provide easier access to heavily used library resources (e-journals, databases, e-books) and services (request forms, interlibrary loans, librarian specialists). In addition, the tiered navigation across the site makes it easier to move from section to section efficiently.
The project took approximately eight months to develop and design, according to Marvin Bielawski, deputy university librarian. Bielawski co-chaired the effort along with Jane Bryan, the library's head of public services and collection development.
"The previous design was in place since 1997, so it was beginning to look a little dated," Bielawski said. "Also, with the old design, it was very difficult to change anything on the home page. We wanted a design that would allow us to make quick changes, since the electronic resources world is very dynamic."
