New Website for the Health Sciences Libraries
On Wednesday, March 16, 2001, the Health Sciences Libraries officially cut over to our new website: hsl.lib.umn.edu . The old domans (biomed.lib.umn.edu, vetmed.lib.umn.edu, and wangensteen.lib.umn.edu) have officially been replaced by hsl.lib.umn.edu/biomed , hsl.lib.umn.edu/vetmed , and hsl.lib.umn.edu/wangensteen , respectively. Redirects are in place, but any links to the old domains should be updated as soon as possible.
This transition is the culmination of a year-long project on the part of the Health Sciences Libraries Web Services Committee (Lisa McGuire, Emily Reimer, Anne Beschnett, David Peterson, Laura Krueger, Lois Hendrickson, and Chacko Kuruvilla) which moved through user surveys, targeted interviews, wireframing, prototyping, usability testing, and, finally, to production. Thanks are also due to our able systems administrators, Paul Bramscher and Eric Forbis, whose assistance allowed us to smoothly transition to OIT servers with no interruptions of service.
If you'd like to know more about how we did it, you can find out at: hsl.lib.umn.edu/news/2011/jan24/welcome . If you have any feedback on the new design, please fill out a form at: https://spreadsheets0.google.com/a/umn.edu/viewform?hl=en&hl=en&formkey=dERLUE9aam9jVEZIOHFmVlVUSElUSWc6MA#gid=0 .
