The library released a new version of its website last week. This new website is part of ongoing efforts to increase access to library services and to standardize the look, feel, and function of University of Montana websites. The new website will be released in stages—the new look and feel was released last week; additional functionality and performance improvements will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
Our new website also allows us to feature images from our unique collections. Did you know the library has over a quarter million images and pages in its digital collections? We’re going to be featuring unique items from those collections to pique your interests while you research. If historic images aren’t your flavor, you’ll also find featured images from library events, lectures, and classes.
We believe the new website will help us serve you better. In the coming weeks, look for an interactive event calendar, an improved library blog, library-related informational and how-to videos, and improved accessibility of content and library-related resources.
As always, please feel free to make suggestions. Our web design process is increasingly iterative—we will be rolling out new features throughout the semester as they’re ready. It’s possible that your suggestion could be our next big improvement.
