In January the Biomedical Library introduced a completely revamped website to the University of South Alabama community. The site has been redesigned to maximize ease of access as well as tie in to the University’s new overall online rebranding. While most of the old content remains, in addition to new content as well, the page has been rearranged to offer quicker access to top resources.
On the right-hand side of the page principal navigation links can be found in drop-down menus under the “Home” link. These menus include “Library Resources,” “Library Services,” “About the Library,” and “Ask a Librarian.” The “Library Resources” menu contains links to the library’s databases & resources, subject guides and Southcat catalog in addition to other research tools. The “Library Services” menu includes links to library instruction, interlibrary loan and faculty services. “About the Library” contains links to library hours, the staff directory and the library’s newsletter, Biofeedback. “Ask a Librarian” takes you to the reference chat page, which also lists all the ways you can contact the Biomedical reference librarians.
Directly below and on the left-hand side of the search box is a list of the most frequently used databases as well the “View All Resources” link, which takes you to an annotated list of all Biomedical Library databases. To the right is a partial list of Subject Guides created by the biomedical librarians to help users quickly identify the best resources for their topic of interest. These include Nursing Resources, Medicine Resources, Mobile Resources, and Writing & Citation Help, as well as other relevant topics.
The page is designed to provide easy and direct access to the resources most commonly used by the Biomedical Library’s users. If you are unable to find a resource or information that you used before please contact the library by chat, phone or email from our Ask a Librarian page.
