Duke University Libraries is redesigning our website to improve your online experience!
What will change?
We’re improving access from all devices. The homepage, headers, footers, and navigation will undergo the following revisions:
- Faster access to the most commonly used resources
- Optimized display for most screen resolutions
- Greater accessibility for users who rely on assistive software
Will anything remain the same?
The catalog and other search interfaces are not part of this redesign, so their functionality will remain the same. These interfaces will, however, adopt the newly redesigned headers and footers used throughout the site.
When will the change take place?
We are targeting Fall 2013 to launch the redesigned site.
After the new site is published, will I be able to get to content on the old site?
After the new site is in production, we will archive the old site in DukeSpace, the university’s open-access repository.
How can I get involved?
As we develop prototypes of web pages, we will post screenshots on this blog for you to review and send comments. We will also periodically test screens in-person at the Bryan Center and other campus locations. We will announce these opportunities for you to participate a week in advance so you can join us in the Bryan Center and help guide the redesign.
We look forward to working with you to improve our library website. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Debra Kurtz, Head of Digital Experience Services
