Because this site isn't finished, all the work is in private GitHub repositories and on private servers. Please see this short screencast for an overview of the project.
During the summer of 2022, I worked with our Instructional Design Librarian to redesign and create a new template for UA Libraries research guides. The template hadn't been updated since 2015, and after a survey went out to librarians, it was clear that some changes were necessary. The old template didn't feel very modern anymore-- it used the old LibGuides standard of three columns of content, which wasn't very streamlined and had a very cluttered feel to it.
We redesigned the template to use a side navigation and a single column of content, doing away with content "boxes" for a more cohesive look and feel. We created a new chat widget, a new global footer so we could eliminate various contact boxes that were taking up content space, and redesigned the "book an appointment" workflow.
