Library Launches Redesigned Website

Posted On: June 19, 2017

In case you didn’t notice, the Library recently launched a redesigned website with a more modern look and feel that is user-friendly across all devices.

We based a lot of our changes on the results of multiple User Experience studies as well as on feedback received via surveys taken by students, faculty, and staff. We appreciate those who took the time to participate in these studies, and we thank you for your efforts.

Here’s some of what’s new:

  • A new “Search” panel with the most frequently used resources right up front so users can quickly access journals, databases, research guides or other materials
  • Updated styling based on the UC San Diego campus templates and graphics. This means our new site displays better on screens of any size and easily conforms to accessibility standards
  • A shift in focus towards helping users accomplish tasks
  • Focused content especially for undergrads, graduate students, faculty and visitors

Some things that have not changed and still look the same:

  • Library catalogs
  • Databases and other e-resources provided by outside vendors
  • Subject and course guides
  • Digital Collections site

Tip: Many of our URLs have changed. If you have specific pages from our site bookmarked or linked in web pages of your own, you’ll want to use the website search function to get the new URLs. If you have any questions at all about where to find your favorite page(s), please contact us.
