YorkU libraries unveil new website

June 5, 2014

York University’s libraries have launched a new website that features a more user-friendly, intuitive interface. “Our primary focus was the student. The challenge we faced was how to convey to them that the library is more than just a place to look for information—it is also a place to ask questions and learn to conduct library research,” said YorkU University Librarian Cynthia Archer. To that end, the site features “doors” that provide students with access to the full variety of services provided by the library. It also has sections devoted to the needs of faculty and graduate students. The revamped website is based on a responsive template that adapts to any screen size, simplifying access for users of mobile devices and tablets. YorkU News
