Special Collections Launches Redesigned Website

Date: February 27, 2013

Contact: Rebecca Blakiston


In February, Special Collections unveiled a newly designed website offering improved visual and navigation elements as well as enhanced functionality.

Users can now browse nearly 1,000 collections by broad subject area (such as History of Science or Performing Arts) or use the website search to begin exploring. The new site uses responsive design, a technology that allows users to experience the full functionality of our website no matter what device you use, including tablets and smart phones.

We hope the new website makes it easier to conduct research and explore the unique collections held in Special Collections. We are seeking feedback from users of the website as we continue to make improvements. If you have suggestions or feedback related to the new website, please send them to Rebecca Blakiston, Website Product Manager for the University Libraries.
