Cornell University Library is starting the new year off with an exciting announcement: we have a new website! Our newly redesign site has all the great features of our previous website – such as our search box for the library catalog front and center on the home page – along with some great new functionality to make navigation easier and more efficient for our users. Some notable features include:
- A new cross-unit Find a Space page that shows the variety of library spaces across all the libraries on campus. Use the available filters to find quiet study spaces in your favorite libraries, reserve a group room for you and your friends, or find a meeting/conference room for your next event!
- The hours page for all unit libraries which includes real-time info on which libraries are currently open, links to the unit websites, and contact information for research and borrowing help.
- A new “Get Started” menu on the homepage with links to some of our most popular resources and services, including Ask a Librarian, to connect with Cornell librarians for research help; Off-Campus Access, to access library resources when you’re not on Cornell’s network; and Citation Management, for help with citation management software such as Zotero and Mendeley.
- A focus on highlighted collections, including Cornell’s Digital Collections, Rare and Distinct Collections, Streaming Video, Ebooks and Audiobooks, Theses and Dissertations, and New Books.
