The New Look and Feel of the Mansfield Library Website

12 September 2011 by Jordan Hess

Mansfield Library Website Design

We’ve recently improved our website to continue offering top-notch access and services to library patrons and to stay current with trends in library science and technologies across academic libraries. By listening to patron feedback, we will continue to work to improve access to library resources through our website. Please comment on the new design!

The changes are cosmetic and functional alike. Most notably,

Improving access to library resources through the library website and other technologies is a key component of the Library’s Strategic Plan:

The library will embrace change and continuous improvement through the increasing capabilities available to us technologically. The library will continue to be valued as a partner to the university research and learning enterprise through efforts that lead, support and enable the wide ranging initiatives that are changing the instructional and research modes of the disciplines. As a partner, we will respond to the growth and changes in the academic community but the central mission of the university library is to support the learning and research mission of the university through its collections, services and provision of discovery tools that enable the effective use of information. The collections, services and the concept of “library” will not only occupy a physical place but will be represented as a web environment.

The library will continually build its services, collections and technological tools to become the portable library. The library is already on this path as the result of technological developments in place which enable our users to interact not only with library staff but our collections through electronic means. Even when our users are in the library building, because half of our collections are in an electronic format, the experience is that of remote access. We recognize that our users approach the library with differing requirements for learning necessitating the library response to be a menu of supportive and appropriate services, technologies and collections to facilitate the learner/researcher demands. To accomplish this, the expertise of the library will become increasingly diverse in skill set and professions.
