New Library Homepage Goes Live August 7

Posted on


The UT Libraries will unveil a new homepage on Friday, August 7. Online visitors will immediately notice a new look, but the changes are more than superficial. Improved search capabilities are available thanks to a  new “discovery and delivery platform” that overlays the Libraries’ catalog and other online resources.

The most obvious change is the addition of the “simple search box” at the top of the homepage. Tabs on the search box offer different ways to search library resources. The new, enhanced searches for books and articles also return more useful search results. A book or article search returns both a list of hits and a list of categories (or “facets”) that can be used to quickly refine the search.

For assistance in determining the best type of search for your research needs, contact a librarian via our chat or email services (accessible from the homepage), or ask for help at the Research Assistance desk in the Commons.

All the services, resources and information available on the old website are still available. If you have difficulty finding the resources you need, please ask.

In fact, the Libraries wants your feedback on the new webpage and the upgraded search capabilities. Enhancements will be ongoing, and the Libraries wants to make those changes that best serve its users. The homepage includes a convenient link for submitting your comments.
