New Library Website Launches Thursday, 6/20

by Jordan Downey on June 19, 2013 in Uncategorized

Odum Library launches our new website on Thursday, June 20th – complete with the fresh design, new look and improved navigation introduced on the campus website last year.  Similar to the campus website, the library’s new website is now mobile device ready.  You can use your smartphone or tablet to access library resources.  The library has thousands of e-books on many academic subjects, not to mention hundreds of full text e-journals, and online databases.   Among the new site’s enhancements is an emphasis on GALILEO’s Discover search function that is a single gateway to  books, articles, videos, music, and other research materials in the library, notwithstanding format (print, electronic, and so forth) or location (local or remotely held).   All of the most helpful “Tutorials” were moved onto the new site and the Reference librarians plan to continue developing and adding more tutorials, including more “How to” or “Do It Yourself” videos.  Navigation should be easier, with a new dynamically updated link for library hours, a new  “Live Chat” widget, and revised “Services” pages for “Students”, “Faculty and Staff”  and others, zeroing in on the resources most often needed by users.  Following on the success of MyVSU, all library account logins have been grouped together underneath MyLibrary.  Comments about the library’s new website can be submitted via the Quick Link – Feedback link on the bottom of every page.
