Feedback from the Liaisons/User Services meeting

Home page:
  • Subject Guides should go under "Tools"
  • Put hours on the top, so you don't have to scroll to see them
  • Is "Reserch Help" a link to tutorials? (A: Partially. It's a link to the FAQs, which include tutorials)
  • Standardize language for journals & databases (use "A-Z list" for both)
  • Add account log in to home page
  • "Feedback" only appears on home page - should be on every page
  • Do we need a Contact section on left side of screen when it's already in the footer?
  • Add catalog link under Research Tools
  • Add Serial Solutions journal title search to search bar

  • Staff pictures
  • Stats
  • Make things more user friendly and easy to find
  • Hours dominant
  • That the main area is so small and doesn't scale up when I resize my window
  • Get rid of the clutter
  • Make it more obvious that Quick Search isn't the catalog
