At our last committee meeting, we began making some prototypes of the new library website.  As a result we now have a preliminary homepage design.  We hope that you’ll find it cleaner and visually more pleasing than the current homepage without making it difficult to access the things you really need.

There is a “Quick Tools” area for those items you use the most, a centralized search box with options for getting to the resources you need, and news items that spotlight new resources, activities, and events at Cook Library.  Amidst all this we’ve kept the familiar three-category navigation scheme: Research, Services, and About Cook.  Hovering over one of the three labels will produce a drop-down menu of items like Research Databases, Citing Sources, etc.

Nothing is set in stone yet, so let us know what you think of our new design.
