Syracuse University Libraries launched a redesigned mobile website on Tuesday, October 8th. In addition to an overall design update, the new mobile site is packed with mobile-optimized applications to aid students and researchers on the go. New features include:
- The Summon search box;
- Link to Subject Guides;
- Expanded list of mobile accessible databases (under Search), such as EBSCOhost, JSTOR, Lexis/Nexis, SciFinder, and more;
- Listing (under Locations) of all study spaces, meeting rooms, and Today’s Room Schedule;
- Expanded hours to include weekly hours and exceptions;
- Full events listings;
- Streamlined staff directory.
Andrew Meyers, a freshman studying Information Management & Technology, was enthusiastic about the new mobile site, saying,
I love how clean it is and it’s so quick to search or find help. I think it really nails what anyone using the site on their phone will need – they want to get their information quickly and easily and the new site does that perfectly. I’m going to use it a lot.
The Libraries welcome comments and feedback on the new site through the “Give Us Your Feedback” link on the main mobile page.
