Introducing: The new Libraries homepage!

Posted August 18th, 2014 by mit-admin

nullWe’ve been busy this summer redesigning our homepage! Through focus groups, interviews, and usability testing, we gathered your feedback about what you love (and don’t love) about the old homepage and some themes emerged:

  • “Less is more!”
    Our most popular links are now stashed in the navigation at the top of the  page.
  • “Search is important, but make it simpler.”
    The search box is still front and center, but we’ve streamlined it.
  • “Library hours need to be easier to find.”
    We’ve moved them to the homepage, where you’ll find them in an easy-to-scan format that highlights which locations are open 24/7.
  • “Research guides are super helpful, but I didn’t know about them.”
    Research guides & experts display on the homepage, so you can easily find who or what you’re looking for.

Stay tuned for more changes coming to our News page this fall.
