Boston University Libraries Launches New Library Web Site with Single Search Box

We know many of you enjoy taking a look at what various libraries are doing when it comes to web site design, features, etc.

So, here’s a link to the NEW Boston U. Libraries website that went live the other day.

In a letter to the BU Community, Bob Hudson, University Librarian writes:

A new Boston University Libraries Search capability allows a single point of search across all our books, articles, media, and other research materials regardless of physical or electronic format, whether local or remote. The flexible interface also places a premium on user’s ability to refine searches to their individual needs.

In addition to a new look and feel, the site improves navigation to library Services and Help pages, as well as useful information on Hours, Locations, and News. The newly designed site also highlights the extensive Research Guides to all our collections and content. You can still also continue to use the websites of the Law, Medical, and Theology libraries.
