Libraries Web Design

Posted in Announcements

The LSU Libraries has a new look to its web site. The new web site features an updated design conforming to the guidelines for the “LSU Web Visual Identity” and uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), making the site more accessible to everyone. Other new features include a blog and a Flash slide show. Let us know what you think!

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.

  1. Could y’all add the renew books link to the homepage?

    Thanks,
    Colorado

    Dear Colorado,
    Thank you for the comment. There is a link to “Renew/Review my Materials” under the Online Catalog form on the home page.

  3. Marc Cohn says:

    Sorry the new look is a lot of wasted space. The visual area is flashy, but uniformative (style over substance). Bring back the Web of Science link on the home page.

    Excellent work! Well-designed, easy to use. Good access to library resources, and very slick new look.

    One small critique I have is that, when a menu option is rolled-over, it will pop up that item’s subnav bar, but not highlight the tab to let you know that it is selected. It does work if you roll over the text, but not if you hover over any of the rest of the ‘tab’.

    Great job on the new site!

    love the libx lsu

  6. Brian Warner says:

    Hate to “criticize” once again, but there’s one more little thing that’s been confusing.

    The sever currently only accepts “http://www.lib.lsu.edu/” or “www.lib.lsu.edu” as valid requests. “lib.lsu.edu” doesn’t get you there.

    I guess I’m just picky. Again, great job on the site!
