Library Web Site Changes - User Feedback Requested

The Library Web Oversight Committee has begun a web site redesign to make the site more accessible, easier to navigate, easier to maintain, and bring it more in line with the visual design of the university’s main web site using UTD colors. We have acquired a new logo for McDermott Library and have changed the Library’s homepage to incorporate the new colors. Some links have been added to the homepage including a site map outlining the structure of the web site. A survey will be done regarding changes that have already been implemented and users will have an opportunity to comment on changes they would like to see. Once we have a prototype we will be testing various user groups to get feedback. Comments regarding the Library's site can be sent to
