Libraries launch new and improved mobile website

mobile websiteSyracuse 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.
