Our new Library website is now finally live at: http://library.lincoln.ac.uk/
(Or www.library.lincoln.ac.uk works just as well.)
This is the Library’s new ‘home’ on the web, and the place where we’ll link to all of our other new services. From now on, we’ll start referring all students and staff to the new website and not to the Portal for information about the Library. Information on the Portal will be gradually phased out of existence. Initially we’ll replace the content on the Portal with links to the new website, before eventually removing the Portal sites entirely. The whole Portal (University-wide) is due to be replaced by c.2014.
We’ll continue to use Blackboard to offer specific, teaching-and-learning-focused Library services to students and staff.
Because of this change, our library catalogue has been relegated to a new web address: http://catalogue.library.lincoln.ac.uk/ – automatic redirects are in place for existing links to catalogue records from Blackboard, etc. There’s also a prominent image displaying a link to the catalogue, on the new website home page.
The new site runs on the University of Lincoln’s WordPress ‘blogging’ platform, which is useful for far more than just blogging. Many thanks to all the people in the Library and ICT services who have worked so hard in putting the new site together, in particular: Adele Beeken, Andrew Beeken, Alex Bilbie, Debbie Clarvis, and Simon Tompkins.
We intend that this site will be subject to constant development and improvement, and we need to hear all of your comments about the design and/or content – please use the feedback form in the bottom-right of the new website.
