What's New with the Website?
Our Website underwent a frontal facelift in 2020 and completed the final stage in 2021. It is our hope that this refresh has made our Website even better and we look forward to your feedback. Please feel free to share any questions, comments or concerns with Beverly Murphy, Assistant Director, Communications & Web Content at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your interest in our site and welcome your continued use and support.
Though it has a similar look and feel to the previous version, you will notice some distinct enhancements:
- More resources added to the "Quicklinks" including DynaMed, CINAHL, and Mobile Apps
- Redesigned search widget for quick queries in PubMed, UpTodate, E-journals, the Catalog and our Website
- Addition of a new set of high value menu resources and services offering "Our Expertise" in evidence-based practice, instructional support, systematic reviews, citation management, medical archives, and more.
- New drop-down menus that give a quick full view of choosable options for our main navigation areas: About Us; Databases; Journals & Books; Request & Reserve; Guides; and Training & Consulting. Please note: These drop-down menus do not currently work in Internet Explorer.
- Redesigned footer with links to additional Duke resources, social media, our newsletter, blog feed, and contact information
- A magnifying glass icon has been added to the top front of our Website that leads to a Google Search of our site. This makes it easier to search our entire site with a click to one standard location.
- Top navigation options have been renamed and streamlined for quicker access to resources.
- Two sections of the site now have redesigned (colorized) and categorized side menus with corresponding drop down menus to help in navigating the Website
