Website Redesign

Welcome to the Laurier Library’s new-look website.

The new site is designed to make it easier for our users to interact with the Library, whether via computer, tablet, or mobile device. 

Note that we are currently continuing to make our old website available at http://library-old.wlu.ca while our users get used to the new platform.

The new site includes a number of specific changes designed to improve the user experience, such as the following:

  • A responsive web design, which optimizes the layout of each page for the user’s screen size and device type for easier use
  • A modified site structure designed to provide simplified access to our most frequently used information and resources
  • A breadcrumb navigational aid at the top of pages to help users keep track of their location within the site

The design, structure and layout of the new site are based on consultations with and feedback from a wide range of stakeholders and beta testers within and external to the Library. In addition, analytics of usage patterns on the "old" site were employed in order to determine and best respond to user habits and preferences.

We anticipate that a number of our users will have questions and feedback as they visit and begin to use the new website. We value your input, and look forward to receiving your emailed comments at libwebadmin@wlu.ca.
