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

  2. Sigrid Kelsey says:

    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.

  4. Brian Warner says:

    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!

  • Because we can, and because we should, here is our latest bi-lingual blog post on a new book on Pierre Soulé, researched at LSU Libraries Special Collections!

    For your reading pleasure, here is a bilingual blog post by Hill staff member, Dr. Germain Bienvenu, on a new book which was researched in part in Hill Memorial Library. Our occasional series of bi-lingual blog posts by Germain speak directly to the strong links we have with French and Francophone…
  • #TBT This week’s Throwback Thursday post focuses on LSU’s spring commencement from 100 years ago. The festivities began on Friday May 28, 1915 with a review of the cadet battalion and ended with 151 graduates receiving their diplomas in the pavilion on Monday May 31. Most of the graduates were from Louisiana, but there was one each from Kansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee, and others came from as far away as Cuba, Puerto Rico, Spain, and the Canary Islands.

    Congratulations, 2015 graduates!

  • LSU’s Lincoln Lexicon | LSU Libraries News & Notes

    Few have ever mastered the English language like Abraham Lincoln. From his days as a young, backwoods bibliophile to one of history’s most expressive writers, Lincoln’s love of language helps us understand not only the man, but all that he represents.
