Sneak Peek! New Website Design

We’re hard at work completely rebuilding a new desales.edu! The new site will launch this August. We hope you enjoy this special preview!

Please note these images are just mock-ups – they don’t function yet.

New DeSales.edu Homepage Preview

A preview of the new homepage as viewed on a desktop.

In our new web design, DeSales’ traditional navy and scarlet are accentuated with pops of green and bright yellow and orange — evoking our lush campus, friendly atmosphere, and stained glass windows.

A combination of sans serif and serif fonts gives the site a fresh, modern feel punctuated by a sense of tradition and gravitas. The same body copy is also used on our athletics website, and so provides a sense of consistency across the DeSales brand.

Get a sneak peek of the new design here: http://bit.ly/2qF7ZWx

As we move further along in this process there are sure to be more updates, tweaks, and adjustments along the way.

Do you have feedback on the design? Please share it here http://bit.ly/2H2UwD2

(There’s a link to the feedback form on the design page, too.)

Sneak Peek: New desales.edu Website Wireframe

The desales.edu website redesign is underway! Our target for launch is August 2018. We’d love your feedback on an important and exciting stage of the project: the wireframe!

The wireframe contains a sampling of the different types of pages for our new website. It’s a bare-bones blueprint that shows where things will go and how the navigation will work — but it’s completely devoid of design elements. You won’t see any fonts, colors or graphics just yet; but, you will see examples of how the new navigation menus will work and the different kinds of building blocks we’ll use to highlight our content.  (Note: The wireframe is NOT mobile friendly, but the new site will be.)

Please go to desales.edu/redesign2018 to find additional project information and the link to the wireframe & feedback form. To remain on target for launch, please submit your feedback by the end of business Friday, 3/23.

Thank you for being a part of this very exciting process!

Next steps: design – fonts, colors, images, videos, and FUN! We will be gathering your feedback on that later this Spring.

Now on display at Trexler Library: Women’s History Month

Come check out the Women’s History Month display at Trexler Library.

“We Can Do It!” proclaims Rosie the Riveter, the now iconic image of American women supporting the home front during World War II. But did you know that Rosie was far from the first American woman to support the country through war?

March is celebrated as Women’s History Month, in recognition of the significant contributions women have made to American history. This year, Trexler Library is celebrating with a display titled “The Roles of America’s Women During Times of War.”

Women’s participation in American wartime spans from our earliest days as a country to modern warfare. For example, Sybil Ludington rode twice as far as Paul Revere to alert militia forces about advances of the British Army in 1777 and Jennie Hodgers posed as a man for three years to serve in the Union Army.

To learn more about these women and the many more who have served since then, visit our display in the Trexler Library lobby until the end of March. To view the resources used in the display and others in celebration of Women’s History Month, check out our corresponding guide: desales.libguides.com/WomensHistoryMonth.

Call for Proposals: The 2nd Annual LVAIC Information Literacy Symposium

Structures of Power in Information
Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 9:30am-3:30pm
Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA

This event will bring together LVAIC faculty, librarians, and other educators invested in teaching students to think, research, and engage critically in today’s complicated information environment.

Whether implementing the scientific method, critiquing media, or evaluating data, our students are confronted by structures of power that influence their learning process. As educators, how do we confront our own assumptions and biases while also helping students develop the skills to navigate their own? What unseen barriers interrupt research? How can we learn from students, within and outside of the classroom, to improve the scholarly ecosystem?

Call for Proposals

We seek proposals for presentations that reveal successes and challenges in information literacy teaching and learning and inspire intercampus dialog about our future information literacy teaching practices.

Proposals from faculty, librarians, and/or other educators in all disciplines and levels welcome!

Proposal Deadline is March 23, 2018.

For further information, please visit the LVAIC Information Literacy

Or contact Debbie Malone at x 1253 or Debbie.malone@desales.edu
