Changes to the MCS Site

By Tom Ipri on April 9, 2009 11:48 AM | Permalink
We made some fairly significant changes to the Media and Computer Services web site, although the content has stayed mainly the same with just a few updates and corrections. Most of the pages can be found at the same urls, the major exception being that the Media Lab (what used to be the Multimedia Design Studio) can now be found at http://www.library.unlv.edu/media/medialab.html. The other major change is a new navigation bar specific to MCS. Previously, all the navigation was on the MCS homepage:

I have created a new right-hand navigation bar with all the most important MCS links. This sidebar remains on all the MCS pages. Some MCS-related pages exist outside the MCS site, so those pages will not have the sidebar.

Although currently no other University Libraries pages have such a sidebar, I didn't want to wander too far afield of the look and feel of the existing site. I found a good example of a right-hand navigation bar on the Office of Information Technology site and modeled the MCS sidebar on that. They have modified it a bit since I originally looked at it, but here is an example of a page that I modeled the MCS sidebar on:

At the bottom of the new MCS homepage, you will find links to the latest posts on this blog as well an updated list of what new films have been added to our collection. The right-hand navigation provides links to this blog and subscribing to the new films list. I hope this navigation helps in finding what you need from Media and Computer Services.
