We heard you! Changes to the Research Databases gateway

Last semester, we heard from many of you that you found the new Research Databases gateway ( challenging to use. Some of you wanted us to go back to the "old" way. For many good reasons, we aren't going back, but we did listen and have introduced some changes that we hope will make the gateway a little (or maybe a lot!) easier to use:

  • Subject list of research databases is more visible
  • More visible access to the A-Z list
  • Now when you type your topic into a search box, you really are searching the databases themselves
Let us know what you think of these changes. Did they address your concerns? Have they made it easier to find your way around? If not, what suggestions do you have?
