About the Website

We have revamped and expanded the website. The technology behind the new website is up-to-date, resulting in a website that is cleaner, has a less cluttered design, with simpler navigation and easy to use. It presents a unified view of the library resources and is an important element of our digital infrastructure. The main menu is the gateway to the website.

Our new website represents many months of user research, planning and building, resulting in a website that attempts to be intuitive, accessible and simple to navigate.
We are excited about the enhanced user experience it will offer and invite you to submit comments.
