Syracuse University Libraries’ New Website Improves User Experience, Accessibility
Syracuse University Libraries has redesigned its website to remain current, improve users’ experience with a more easily navigated and intuitive way to find information, improve accessibility and align with University branding.
The Libraries incorporated survey feedback, anecdotal comments from users, a review of other academic library websites and an analysis of website statistics to create a redesigned website for optimum user experience. During the redesign process, the Libraries incorporated several opportunities for the campus community to provide feedback. The new site has improved navigation, functionality, responsive design, content and access to collections.
The new website is live and redirects ensure that users will automatically be routed to the new site. Several video tutorials are available for users to acclimate to the new website. These are also posted on the website blog:
- Website homepage overview
- Website audience navigation
- Website megamenu navigation
- Website search function
The Libraries website will continuously evolve and improve. All suggestions can be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: website. Edits or corrections will be tracked with a resolution communicated back to the editor/requestor.
