    Steely to Launch New Website on July 5

    W. Frank Steely Library has an all-new site launching on July 5, available at /content/inside/library.html. Here are the changes you should be aware of:


    The main navigation on the home page has been simplified to four categories, making it easier to access services and resources.

    Because the site structure is so different, any bookmarks you have saved for the old site will no longer work. Ask us if you have questions.

    Clear Language

    The language of the site has been simplified for clarity and ease of use. New content was written with plain language to be direct and concise.

    Database Names

    Database names are standardized. If you can't find something you remember from the old site, we've created references in the database lists to help you find what you were looking for. In addition, you can now sort the databases by subject, vendor, and content type.

    You can always ask us if you need more help.

  • What's Next...

    Usability Testing

    We are partnering with a Media Informatics class to perform ongoing usability testing. We have adopted a process in which user experience and behavior inform modifications to the website. Let Michael Providenti know if you'd be interested in participating.

    Your Feedback is Needed

    We want your feedback. If something you need has disappeared, please use the ask us service to let us know.

    You can give us comments (anonymously, if you prefer) or report issues from our tell us page.

    You can also contact any Website Task Force team member:

    We are happy to meet with you individually as well, or schedule a meeting with your department.
