New Website is now live

We have incorporated your feedback and we are pretty happy with the results! We have designed this site to be easier to navigate, so please let us know if you are having trouble finding what you need.

A few quick tips:

search collections




The main search is in the same place. The box there will search OneSearch for books, articles, DVDs and more. The new buttons will open some of our most used tools in new windows.





hours and contact






Hours and our contact information are displayed prominently on the top of the right hand column. You can easily see what time we close and how to contact us.




collections borrowing



All of the links that were previously on the bottom half of the page are now found in the top navigation. We’ve reorganized everything so that all the information you need is no more than two clicks away.





We hope you like the new page — please let us know what you think!

Your Feedback Needed: Library Web Redesign

One of the things we often hear from you is that our website is a bit outdated. We agree!

We’ve been working hard to put together a redesign, and now we need your feedback. So click around and let us know what you think! It’s still a work in progress, so pieces, like the guides, haven’t been fully updated yet.

We will incorporate your ideas this summer. While the website may undergo design changes between now and when we go live, we’re especially interested in if you can find the content you need.
