RU Libraries website homepage upgraded


The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to introduce the newly upgraded 'front door' of our website. This 'refresh' is part of a continuing effort to enhance user experience on the site by making it more visually attractive and usable. The improvements, however, are not intended to change the way users interact with the website.

The new homepage, introduced on July 18th, provides the same navigation as was previously available but within a cleaner, more elegant interface. The 'refresh' also functions as a staging space for a new tabbed search box that lets users easily search library resources in four distinct areas; articles, books & media, journals, and course reserves. The new search interface is still being tested and the Libraries invite all users to visit the homepage and provide feedback on how successful they are in finding what they need.

Other aspects of the homepage 'refresh' are:

We hope the homepage 'refresh' enhances users' experiences on the Libraries' website. We look forward to introducing additional upgrades to the website in the future.
