This summer, Langsam Library is a busy place as over 4,000 incoming students participating in UC’s New Student Orientation visit and learn about the Libraries. While here, they engage in activities designed to be both entertaining and informative about the various research resources, assistance and library services they can utilize when they begin classes in the fall.
On May 6, the Health Sciences Library along with all UC Libraries will unveil a completely redesigned website.
Available at http://libraries.uc.edu/hsl/ (same URL as current site) the new website is easy to read and navigate with an updated look and feel, an uncluttered homepage with most content viewable without scrolling, new information and streamlined navigation. User-requested features such as the posting of today’s hours, enhanced location maps and a prominent link to Off-Campus Access from the homepage are included in the redesign.
New content around the growing subject of digital scholarship has been added, as well as a website dedicated to the Libraries’ Special Collections. Also featured prominently on the site are links to HSL Research Guides, a Distance Learning guide, workshops, eJournals and frequently used Health Sciences resources.
The tabbed search box, available on the left-side of the homepage and throughout on many secondary pages of the site, will allow users to search for articles, books, journals, databases and quickly and easily.
For those viewing the site on a tablet or mobile device, the redesign is responsive to adjust to individual screen sizes.
The website redesign does not include the Library Catalog or online databases.
Feedback is welcome as the Health Sciences Library website is a work in progress and will continue to develop over the summer.
Watch for more information about the newly redesigned HSL site!
