After more than half a year of design and construction, the new version of the library website is finally ready for use. Built as a platform with the database at the backend, this new website integrates various resources including collections, services, spaces and facilities of the library for easy discovery. Highlights of the improved features are:
l More efficient discovery and display of collections
Discovery and display of the collections are enhanced by improved site navigation，search engine，and database navigation. Display of Scholar Recommend，Special Collections, SUSTech Knowledge Commons, and SUSTech Digital Commons are specially designed to highlight these featured collections.
l More convenient access to services
Optimized interfaces are provided for different types of users including students, staff, alumni, and visitors. My Workspace is the personal place for checking individual’s loans, reservations, and bookings.
l Improved user experience
Layout is flattened to reduce complexed hierarchies. Dynamic videos played at the background make the theme and content more prominent. Responsive design is adopted to optimize user experience across different platforms.
