The A.T. Still Memorial Library is delighted to announce the release of its new site design and structure. A large number of A.T. Still University staff have worked together to develop a more contemporary and more accessible face for the library’s homepage. The library greatly appreciates the input and work of all of the staff from the library, information technology services, and communication & marketing who contributed to this project.
We hope that you will find the structure of the new pages simpler to navigate and more conducive to finding resources and information. The new design is consistent with current library design trends, and should be comfortable for students with recent university library experience. We hope that it will also highlight and better provide access to our most sought resources — writing and research tools — as well as to library news and events.
- The library’s main URL has changed, but redirects will be put in place allowing any bookmarks or saved pages to still work.
- The majority of the library’s subject and program pages remain the same.
- Still OneSearch
- Still OneSearch still offers all of the same features and abilities, but looks quite different, details of which can be found here.
- The full-text, e-books, and peer-reviewed limiter options have moved to the results screen: run your search, and then select them from the left side of the results screen to narrow your found items.
- The discipline limiters are no longer selected by default, but you can find them by clicking on the arrow and label at the bottom left of the search box.
- There is now a link to the library catalog below the search button, with the advanced search, help, and browse e-journals
- Click on the tabs at the top of the search box to find searches for clinical resources (UptoDate/Dynamed/Rehab Ref), Pubmed, and e-books.
- Access to discovery tools – the catalog, databases list, e-journals list, etc.
- Find these right in the middle of the page. This should make it much easier and faster to find key resources.
- Access to program toolkits
- Find the different program toolkit pages for your schools and departments in a box to the right of the page.
- Access to subject guides & tutorials
- Find the subject pages, tutorials and guides in a box in the middle of the screen.
- Hubs are a new component of the library website design, and pull together access to related key resources to support our most requested services and resources. The library is still in the process of creating or acquiring new supports for different aspects of these focal centers, both online and offline by building staff expertise in these areas.
- Research hub
- The research hub includes:
- Library Data Services, Research Ethics & Skills, Research Librarian Contacts, Online Professional Personas, Create your ORCiD, etc.
- Writing & citation hub
- The writing & citation hub includes:
- Writing for Publication, Citation Management, Academic Writing Resources, Copyright, Predatory Publishing, etc.
- Educational Technology Development Center (ETDC)
- The ETDC is most directed at faculty, and includes: core services (curricular technology & media support), Qualtrics, Lynda.com, media recording (AZ), and more.
- About the library & library services
- Find information about the library by clicking on the “about the library” link in the menu bar right above the search box, or from the “guides & services” box in the middle of the page. You can find out about hours, services, physical spaces, library staff, etc.
- Alumni, clinical faculty, and preceptors
- Find the special access points for alumni and clinical preceptors from the “about the library” link in the menu bar right above the search box.
Expect additional stories both in this and future release of the library newsletter to find out more detailed information about these new and expanded services.
We want your feedback on the new design! We want to find any errors, anything we should consider adding in the future, and to find out what you like about the new design. Please visit the site, and take our very brief feedback survey to tell us what you think. And of course, your liaison librarian would be delighted to hear about your views on this.
