Website Update / Call for testing!

I just wanted to take a quick minute to show you the work Michael and I have been doing this week to prepare the new home page launch. In addition to changing the home page, we've also been asked to extend the width of all library pages to match the width of our new home page. It was determined by looking at our website statistics that it is now safe for us to use a wider layout.

To check out our work so far (which is nearing completion), please check out the Library Website on Set.

One change you might immediately notice is the improvement to the top-level pages, such as "About Us" and "Site Search." We've taken the previously hard to read lists and formatted them using a style similar to the new home page. We hope this makes the sections more scannable, and therefore easier to identify information.

Furthermore, you might notice that Michael had the idea to split up the old "Help and Instruction" link into "Help" and "Using the Library," each with their own page. We hope this will address problems found while performing usability studies.

Anyhow, there are a number of changes you may (or may not) notice throughout the site. Please test the heck out of our new site, and let us know if you find any errors with the layout and we'll correct them promptly!
