Changes to the Website

As your Web Services Librarian, I am always updating and improving the website. Sometimes this means making little changes here and there. Sometimes it means making more sweeping changes. Recently, I made a bigger updates and thought I would share them with you.

Making the site faster

It's a bit of a saw that the Internet makes us impatient, but speed does matter online. By streamlining our pages, the site should be about 40% faster. This just makes it easier for you to get around.

One search box (to rule them all)

Although this happened a month or so ago, there is now one search box at the top of the site. You can either search for something (a book, movie, etc) in our library catalog, or search for something on the site. Use the drop down menu to select your preference.

Where's the print button?

One of the first things you might notice is that the "Print this page" button is gone. Now you can simply print the page in your browser and the site's header and navigation disappear, like magic!

How do I?

The drop-down list of options called "How do I?" moved up to the corner. I hope this makes it a little easier to find and use.

Ask a question, make a comment

At the bottom of every page now is a link to the library's contact information. Feel free send you questions or comments about the website, of anything else about the library.
