WSU Libraries has taken the first step in updating the Libraries’ website, and rolls out an updated look on Monday, January 6th. “Our website did a great job for a long time,” said Web Services Librarian Ray Henry, “but with the launch of Search It and its new interface, we decided it was a good time to update not only the look and feel, but also the underlying structure of the website. We’ve made some good improvements, including friendlier URLs and cleaner navigation, which are good first steps.”
Future improvements to the site will include a more mobile- and tablet friendly responsive design, and other changes that will come after the Libraries does several rounds of user testing. In the meantime, site visitors who’d like to provide feedback have plenty of opportunities to so so, including the website feedback links at the bottom of every page on the site. “You can submit our feedback form anonymously, or if you’d like to hear back from us you can add your email address,” said Ray. “We’d really like to hear from you, especially if you are experiencing any challenges with the new site. We want it to be the best it can be, and we can’t do that without the help of the whole community!”
