The Georgia State University Library’s website has a lot of impressive new services and applications. Designed to be user-oriented, the site is based on usability studies conducted with faculty, graduate students and undergraduates in 2009 and 2010. However, there may be some functionality that you have not yet discovered! Many of these tools could dramatically improve your research needs, while making communication with the library much easier.
If you’re interested in discovering the library site’s full utility, we will be providing an orientation to the new site. This “brown bag” lunch presentation will be from noon to 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 16, in Classroom Two of Library North. In this session, we will provide a full tour of the site, including an introduction to the MegaSearch box, the Live Assistance chat widget, the new horizontal navigation menu, and the library’s use of social media.
Our philosophy is to continue improving the site based on our users’ needs and feedback. After the session would be a perfect opportunity to provide your constructive responses to the site. With your feedback, we can attempt to make it even easier to find new information, be productive and make efficient use of your research time.
