The library launched its new website over the weekend. We are joining the many colleges and departments around the university using the content management system Drupal. This software makes it easier for us to update and maintain the library websites.

Give Us Feedback!

We would love to hear what you think of the new library websites. We are constantly working to make our sites easier and more pleasant to use. We will continue fine-tuning the site based on our users' feedback.
