The new Gleeson Library website is live! With this redesign we’ve improved the site’s usability by retooling the homepage, reorganizing our menus, and updating our content. We’ve also made changes so that library accounts use preferred first names.
What to expect on the new website
Here’s an abbreviated list of some of the updates you’ll see when exploring the new website.
First things first, a couple of the library’s web addresses have changed:
Our old links will redirect, but please take a moment to update any bookmarks, links in syllabi or Canvas, etc., to ensure you’re using current URLs.
Look and feel
The look and feel of the library’s website redesign aligns with the university’s new website. Our new homepage highlights popular library services and resources, showcases our collections, and features library news and events.
Be sure to check out another recent Gleeson Gleanings post that discusses some specific changes and features of the new site: Overview of Key E-Resources.
Configuration changes were made to our library sites so that they now use preferred first names for students, faculty and staff. The changes bring the libraries into alignment with the USF Preferred First Names Policy. This policy offers students the option to use a preferred first name instead of their legal name, in order to help foster a more welcoming, supportive, and respectful campus climate.
We’re excited for you to have a look around the new library website! We welcome any feedback you may have.
