Library Website Beta!

website beta screenshot

We’ve got a fancy new myPlymouth, fresh paint on the university website, and now a beta of the new library website.

The site now features new searching technology that makes it easier (hopefully) to find what you’re looking for, and a breeze to explore the collection. Find yourself a novel for the beach or keep up to date with new works covering the 20th Century (browse further and you’ll find an interesting looking book titled Mr. Lincoln’s T-mails).

And if you’re not exactly sure what you’re looking for, just try a simple search. “Anthropology,” for example, brings up the research guide to get you started, and in the right column of the search page you’ll see a list of links that let you further narrow the search. Click around and you might find that we have a few dozen online resources in that area, including three on ethnomusicology.

But this is a beta. That means some…a lot of things don’t work yet, and the whole site might fall apart while we’re working on it. Don’t hesitate to tell us about what’s broken or what you like in the comment forms at the bottom of almost every page (or tell me directly, if you’d like). This is an exciting new step for us, and we want to make it right.
