New Look for Library Homepage!

Hunter Library’s homepage has a new look! Any moment now, our refreshed website will go live.

What’s different?

Our most popular resources have been placed front and center and arranged in easy-to-navigate tabs that connect you to books, articles, journal titles, reserve items, and research help. Library hours are now highlighted on the front page, as well as library news and a featured resource. We have organized our links according to audience (Students, Distance & Off-Campus Students, Faculty & Staff, and Visitors) and by broader categories (for example, Collections, Research Help, Digital Collections).

Can’t find your favorite link? See this guide to the web page changes:
