These pages are the culmination of a redesign process which began last spring with a usability study under the direction of Sheryl Stahl, the Library Webmaster. Library staff interviewed students and faculty on the three stateside campuses to learn how we might redesign the site to better serve our users needs.
While the Library worked to add quality, content and organization to the site, our Web Manager, Brendan Rice, worked to make it both elegant and functional.
In the very near future, we will be adding images from our manuscript collections, as well as from HUC-JIR's Artist in Residence programs, and those of local artists.
The latest trend in web pages is to "keep it in beta." Thus, these pages will continue to be works-in-progress as we respond to the input of our users and find new resources to include. If you have additional suggestions or requests, please send them to Sheryl Stahl (firstname.lastname@example.org) And, as always, please feel free to ask an HUC-JIR librarian for assistance.
