The library homepage has been updated!

We've added several new ways to connect with us for research help and information.

First, we've brought back the news feed to the homepage with a new RSS icon to subscribe to us in your favorite reader.

Underneath that we've also added our Facebook and Twitter badges; follow us on either or both for more ways to connect with your research liaisons.

Finally, we've added a live chat widget to our main page for direct instant messaging to our Reference Desk.

This being summer and down-time we're doing our updates and upgrades and trying new things so features may come and go from the page as we work out the kinks. If something you like disappears, please let us know you miss it!

We'd like to hear from you about how the new homepage works (or doesn't work) for you. Choose your social platform and let us know!
