The UC Berkeley Library is known for its world-class collections and high-caliber services. With today’s launch of a newly redesigned website, those Library resources will become even more accessible to users on campus and across the globe. 

The design of the new site was informed by user-experience research and features a streamlined homepage, simpler navigation, and reimagined page styles that bring essential information to the forefront. The site also advances the Library’s goal of meeting Americans with Disabilities Act standards.  

“The user experience is at the heart of everything we do,” said Jeff MacKie-Mason, university librarian. “This redesign puts accessibility first, making our materials and services easier to find and use for the growing number of people who visit our website each day.”    

The Library Information Technology and Library Communications teams collaborated on the complex, multifaceted project, and will continue to refine the website this summer.
