New Website Design

The UMC Library website has changed. The look has been updated and simplified. We added a login for offsite users (it is useful for everyone actually) and an automatic link to the New@UMC Library blog.

The old familiar links remain although many have been edited or rearranged.. Many thanks to Amber Bailey and Anders Berggren for their help.
