Yes! We decided it was time for a fresh look and some new features for the library homepage. So we sat down with some students, looked at some surveys, and came up with a new homepage which includes:
- Today’s library hours
- Most of the old links in a menu on the left
- A news feed from the new library blog
- A search widget so you can search the catalog, reserves, and databases right from the homepage as well as access your library account to see what you have checked out
- A research guides widget for quick access to research help and database links
We hope the new homepage is easier to use, easier on the eyes, and makes it easier to find the library resources.
