The UCSB Library website (www.library.ucsb.edu) just got a major facelift--our first redesign of the site in more than five years. The redesigned website is mobile friendly and takes advantage of increased database-driven functionality to minimize duplicate content. A simplified navigational structure and reduced number of pages makes it easier for users to quickly find what they’re looking for. Finally, the modern look of the site mirrors elements of the UCSB Library building renovation and reflects our status as a research library supporting a top-tier public university.
The UCSB Library Catalog remains unchanged...for now. A separate project to update the catalog is underway.
This website redesign is the result of a deliberate and multi-year review process that involved collecting survey data and website analytics, as well as conducting user testing. Thank you to the many people who participated!
