The Carnegie Mellon University Libraries launched its new website on Thursday, August 5.

Informed by feedback from internal and external stakeholders, site analytics, and web design best practices for accessibility and responsiveness, the new website better reflects the CMU and Libraries brand while providing a flexible platform to highlight resources.

The redesigned site is user-focused, with an expanded Quick Links section enabling one-click access to popular services from the homepage, helpful Getting Started guides with curated services for specific user groups, and a new Services Directory that offers a one-stop-shop for users to browse the range of Libraries service offerings from a single link.

Additional features include:

  • A leaner website that’s easier to manage.
  • Simpler service and resource pages focused on the content most relevant to users.
  • Centralized listings for news, events and exhibits.
  • Easy-to-navigate interface that is compatible with web accessibility guidelines for assistive technology.

Website visitors are invited to share their feedback.
