What's New Archive: 2010

Back to current What's New..


The Library is redeveloping its website in 2011

The Library and Information Commons websites have remained largely unchanged for several years and it is time to review their visual style and information architecture. Stage 1 of the Library web project is due for release in mid-February. It will include: a redesigned home page, new navigation across all pages and a revised banner.

Since many students are regular users of both services, the Information Commons website will also be integrated into the new Library website, and the most popular IC links will feature prominently on the new home page.

Project work during 2010 has involved an environmental scan, focus group discussions, and reviews of site content, resulting in a web strategy focussed on understanding our key site audiences and enabling them to access the quality resources and services they need as quickly and simply as possible. The Library?s Digital Services team is currently working on the site design (an early wireframe is linked below) and the Library is also undertaking extensive content redevelopment. You will have an opportunity to have your say through a web-based usability process in January. We will provide more updates in the new year.

The wireframe key features: prioritising search and discovery; providing top level access to patron accounts; and improving promotion of new and existing resources and collections.

Announcing Library Search ? a new way to discover library resources

Library Search combines results from the traditional Library catalogue with over a hundred million articles from our subscribed databases. Not all our electronic resources are accessible via Library Search but we believe the new functionality is so significant we've made the decision to go live as "early adopters".

Voyager will remain accessible as a separate link on the Library website.

Course Readings and Exam Papers, which are only accessible to members of the University, are searchable in a separate Library Search database; this includes access by course code and paper name.

Please help us improve our next generation Library Search system by giving your feedback using the Feedback link on the right-hand side of your search results page.
