A new look for the Library website, and changes to navigation

December 7, 2016 - 12:28pm by Andy Hickner

You've probably noticed the Library website has a new look. 
We switched to a YaleSites theme, meaning that our website's look and feel will be more consistent with Yale University-wide branding.  
We also implemented some changes to our site's navigation.  These include: 
  1. Renaming the “Research Help” the sub-menu as “Ask a Librarian”
  2. “Library Technology” links, including “Mobile Device Applications,” can now be found under the “Services” sub-menu.

Finally, there are a few changes to the content on our homepage:

  1. Information that was previously located in 2 columns have now been consolidated into a single column;
  2. “Request materials” link is now located in the left column;
  3. “Highlighted Resources” links have been removed.  The resources that occupied this section (Guides. Access Medicine, ClinicalKey, Ovid MEDLINE, Scopus, Web of Science, Embase, PsycINFO) can now either be found in the dropdown navigation menus (“Guides”) or on the “Biomedical Resources” list of databases
We tested these changes on volunteers who use the library website to make sure that users would still be able to easily and quickly find important content.
We welcome your feedback on these changes.  Contact Andy Hickner to share your feedback or to report any problems you may encounter.
