Ideas & Testing
This section of the redesign website will display segments of visual look-and-feel, information architecture, search interface, and other elements of the future Libraries website as the redesign process gets into the design and development phase.
The Web Board invites the entire Rutgers University Libraries community and, occasionally, an even wider audience, to comment on the design results and contribute to further improving them. We might also conduct polls or online discussions about certain topics related to the redesign.
If you have an idea how to make this broad collaboration practical and useful for all, please leave a comment at:

Design Prototypes (Dewey)
A design prototype codenamed Dewey has been submitted by our design firm for our review and comment.
A glossary of terms have been added to aid in identifying the terms used on the website. Possible alternatives and explanation are also listed as the Web Board seeks to simplify and clarify terms.
