Check Ouut New Public Library Website

The Seattle Public Library has recently launched an improved and easier to use website to find and use Library resources.

The website was last redesigned in 2003 and the 2012 Library levy included funding to improve computer and online services,

The information says:

The Library conducted public surveys and focus groups to ensure the site would meet the public’s needs and expectations. The Library talked with users and non users of the Library, as well as non-English speakers and patrons with accessibility needs. 
Usability testing was completed at each phase of the project. The Library maintained a website redesign project page for the public to track progress on the project. The public was welcome to provide comment throughout the entire redesign. 
The new site provides better access to the Library’s collection of books and materials, educational classes and services, as well as librarian assistance. The new site works well with mobile devices, a feature patrons have been asking for, as well as integrated search results and easier access to online resources and media.
