New Kennedy Library website design

I will be honest…since i am no longer *required* to keep this blog up (since i was doing it for a class last quarter), i have had a hard time being motivated to do it. But, as a student and member of the Student Library Assistant Council (SLAC), I am “taking the plunge”, if you will, into a beautiful marriage with this library blog. 

SOMETHING TO CHECK OUT! If you have NOT been to the Kennedy Library website you must go RIGHT NOW. They have added a tabbing system to the navigation page that makes getting around the site ten times easier. You might even want to add the page to you favorites bar…that’s how impressive it is.

This is a big year for the library. The leadership at the library is implementing changes and plans made last year for this year. For example, you will soon be able to see if there are computers available in the Polyconnect Lab through LCD screens and possibly even the internet (Library people, correct me if I am wrong). That is going to be extremely helpful. I don’t know about you, but i’m one of those people wandering around the computer lab looking over shoulders to see if people are wrapping their stuff up and i usually get swooped. I guess that’s just another reason to check out a laptop!

  1. Thanks for the kind words, Jordan. We are glad so many people find it helpful (we do, too!).

    And, as always, we’re open to suggestions, etc.

  2. Is this going to be a live video feed where you can see people coming and going or just like a map of all the computer’s with like a green or red that indicates if someone is logged on or not? Either way this is a great idea!

      It will be a map kind of like what you said with the color indicator of what computers will be available and will show by floor how many computers are available. It’s hope to be launched in the fall. Very exciting! Such a huge problem right now.
