Library and Computing web site to be refreshed as part of JCU's web refresh

JCU is applying RWD (Responsive Web Design) templates to its web presence this week and this will affect the appearance of the Library & Computing Services pages.

The official launch date is November 15th, but the changes to our web site will actually occur on Thursday the 14th as the rollout progresses.

Responsive Web Design means the pages will automatically and gracefully arrange content depending on the size of your screen, making them easier to use on small screen devices like smartphones, without hindering their utility on large screen devices.

The current home page will change from the current four column layout, but those links will be available in the in-page navigation as dropdowns beneath the current headings of Find, Learn, Connect and About.

Upcoming Library events including workshops will feature under the 'What's Happening' heading, similar to the new Current Students site.

We expect a smooth transition to the new design, the actual site structure is unchanged and no links will change. Any feedback, thoughts or suggestions you have can be sent via the feedback link at the bottom of every page.
