Announcing New University Library Gateway Site

The re-designed University Library Gateway Web site is now up. Highlights include:

* new Easy Search search engine that provides powerful one-stop searching across dozens of digital and print resources to locate journals, books, and other media directly from the University Gateway
* resources and services links accessible from Library Gateway and organized by University affiliation / interest (undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, alumni, visitors, users with disabilities)
* new and updated information, guides, and tutorials about using the library for research (“How to Use the Library”)
* subject guides from various departmental libraries can be accessed directly from the Library Gateway (“Subject Resource Guides” ) as well as from their source library site
* departmental libraries organized by libraries ("Find a Library") and by College major ("Libraries by College/Major")
* more

Content will continue to be added, updated, and enhanced. Your feedback is welcomed by the Library Web Content Group and Gateway SWAT team. Send you comments to the "Gateway conversion team" link at the bottom of any new page or directly by e-mail gateway_conversion@library.uiuc.edu. I will keep you posted as to redesign of pages deeper into the University Library site (departmental libraries' pages) when changes move beyond upper level site pages.
