Dudley Knox Library Launches All New Website

By MC3 Michael Ehrlich

The Naval Postgraduate School's (NPS) Dudley Knox Library (DKL) launched its completely redesigned website, Dec. 28, with site administrators confident the new site will better enable its NPS student and faculty users to be more successful learners, researchers and educators.

"Our basic strategy is to curate a web presence to help our primary users, which are students and faculty," said DKL Web Services Librarian and co-chair of the library's web working group, Stacy DeMatteo. "We want all users to quickly and easily find what they need."

The process for realigning the DKL website began more than 18 months ago with dedicated research into modern web design, content authoring and strategy, detailed analytics and user input. Some additions include clearly defined search engines, links to specific NPS courses, and a "tool belt" for performing some of the more common tasks, such as printing from a laptop, finding articles or eBooks, and searching the latest NPS theses.

DKL and its web working group are already meeting regularly to discuss continuous improvements to the new site, but administrators say the most critical tool in driving that improvement is direct feedback from students and faculty. To check out the new DKL site and provide your feedback, visit http://library.nps.edu/.
