Website Visual Update

Library Faculty & Staff,

We are making slight updates to the look of the libraries website as part of the university’s switch to responsive design. A responsive design makes our website visually appealing and user-friendly across all devices and screen sizes.  This involves changing the background color of the top of the page to a flat blue instead of multi-colored blue. Also, we will be updating to a university approved logo. No other parts of the website, including navigation, will be affected by this change.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Paul Thompson.
