The Oxford College Library has launched a preview of the library’s new website. Featuring the same design as the main Libraries website, the release helps the Libraries move one step closer to its long-term goal of bringing all Emory University Libraries, locations, and services under one unified web presence in an effort to improve the user experience. The preview of the website is located at https://prod.oxford.library.emory.edu.
The Emory University Libraries Web Redesign project began in 2018 with an engagement with Viget – a design, engineering, and strategy firm who served as a digital partner and expert that provided a vision for a redesigned digital presence for the Emory University family of libraries. The project picked up this year when the Libraries underwent a migration of its websites to Drupal, a content management system hosted by Acquia.
The discovery and design phase included user research, information architecture, user experience design, and interaction and visual design. Development of the new website will continue through the Spring 2022 semester.
