Although the user studies seemed to indicate that the vertical tabs were easier to navigate than the horizontal tabs, we felt the link order could be improved, and some renaming should occur, both in the tabs and in the sections they connect to. For example, since “About the Library” is heavily used, we felt that tab should be moved up, while “Help & Tutorials” should be moved down.
There were also problems with the “Browse by Subject” tab. We felt the information was unnecessarily redundant and could easily be incorporated into another tab and eliminated. The content was well-represented under the “Resources for…” tab. The Subject Guides are also under “Help & Tutorials.” The only thing that seemed to be losing a spot is the “Libraries By College/Major” – a very helpful resource – that could make sense within the “Find a Library,” one of the “Popular Resources”
