Improvements Introduced to WU Libraries’ Homepage

 

WU Libraries have been working to improve the user experience on the current Libraries website. Our first priority has been to make the homepage simpler, more user friendly and functional. Please note that the entire website has not been redesigned. We’ve simply implemented changes to the homepage in order to make it easier to navigate.

The changes include:

The default search is now the Classic Catalog. Staff and student survey results showed that the Classic Catalog is preferred over the Primo search. The Primo search is still listed on the accordion menu.

Adding a link to the A-Z database below the database search box. Survey feedback showed that users wanted quicker access to this resource.

Icons that link to popular links: Library Hours, My Accounts, Off-Campus Access, Research Guides, Study Rooms, and Technology Lending.

If you have questions about the website, please contact Jody Mitori, Manager of Communications and Special Events, at jmitori@wustl.edu.
