We’re on pace for launching our redesigned library website this fall. We will go live on October 14, 2013 (during fall break), but you can get a sneak peek now at some of the main “portal” pages we’re working on. Let us know how we’re doing!

Library Homepage


  • Emphasis on searching
  • Vertical tabs for searching different kinds of resources (Books & More, Articles, All, Our Website)
  • Five quick links on right for common requests
  • Global navigation in the masthead

David M. Rubenstein Library


  • Visual panels showing diverse collecting areas
  • Vertical tabs for searching the catalog, collection guides (a.k.a. finding aids), or digitized collections
  • Buttons in upper-right for logging in (to Aeon special collections request system), and for contacting Rubenstein Library staff.

Lilly & Music Libraries


  • Tabbed search boxes to support common research needs (e.g., search for Scores at Music Library)
  • Simpler design with fewer links, emphasis on the key areas

Questions or comments about these designs? Leave us your feedback in the comments section below.
