Sneak Peek: Medical Library Website Redesign
The Medical Library website, in conjunction with Kresge Library,
is undergoing a major update this summer!You may preview the beta version of the medical library website at http://medlibbeta.oakland.edu
The new site will feature a
simplified, user-centered interface, clear organization of content,
easier navigation between the Medical Library, Kresge Library and School
of Medicine sites, and a responsive design that automatically adjusts
to tablet and phone screens. To provide consistency in locating resources and coordinating
services among the OU Libraries, search and service interfaces will
mirror those of Kresge Library. The library presence on the
School of Medicine website will also be expanded to include the library's mission,
vision, policies, and other key information.
This is still a work in progress, so some pages may not be functional. We welcome your feedback, so please send comments and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. | |
