Yes, It's a New Library Home Page!

Eek! What happened to the home page?

The Library has changed and updated its home page to make it easier for you to find and access what you need. All your favorite resources are still here, but your route to access them looks a bit different. We divided the page into three main content areas: Search & Browse; Help & Support; and Hours, Updates, & About Us. The Help & Support section provides easy access to services and collections based on your information needs. 

We asked members of the Cal Maritime community for feedback on the previous home page, and we listened to your recommendations. We also made improvements to the usability based on best practices. We hope you enjoy the new experience.

A big shout out of gratitude to Kitty Luce, our Web Services Librarian, who made it happen! Thanks also go to Amber Janssen for conducting usability testing, and to Margot Hanson for creative and practical input. This update couldn't have happened without Joe Hilton and the University of Liverpool Library, who were generous with their code and their time.
