New websites for Special Collections and all Penn State Libraries

Penn State University Libraries have launched a new website, based on extensive usability testing and user feedback, and meant to make services and resources more accessible and discoverable to students, faculty and staff.

At the same time, Special Collections needed to migrate dozens of projects done over the past decade into the new content management system. We used the opportunity to make our top-level pages more attractive, and hopefully better organized for our users. In addition, we added an online tutorial and tour.

We're still working out a few kinks here and there, but if you are interested, please take a look and tell us what you think! We'll be doing user studies later in the fall semester.
