Take a Look at Our New Look

Posted on August 19th, 2006 by

It’s here! After a year of surveys and focus groups, a lot of meetings, and many, many summer e-mails we have launched a new homepage for the library. We wanted to be more standards-compliant, have a look that was closer to the campus style, and include some neat things like a simple catalog search right on the main page. (The code for that, by the way, was written by Gustavus grad Alec Sonsteby, who is a now a librarian at Concordia.)

It’s a little like getting a new couch – now everything else looks a bit dowdy. But we will be working on making changes elsewhere on the site.

Meanwhile, please do let us know if you have questions, comments, or suggestions. Thanks to those who participated in focus groups and surveys (including over 900 students!) and to the library publications committee and Jerry Nowell for his invaluable advice.

Blogs and more blogs – as part of the redesign, we are trying to make it easier to check on new resources and events at the library. Those will be listed in separate blogs. If you get this via e-mail you’ll find them coming separately. Of course, we will take you off the e-mail list if you’re feeling information overload. Just drop us a line.
