There’s a new way to tell students about the services and resources we offer at Kennedy Library and it comes in the shape of an easy-to-remember and easy-to-share link: http://lib.calpoly.edu/students.
A few months ago we revamped the Services for Students page to make it more fun and engaging — we added lots of photos, gave it a new layout and added important and very helpful information for new and returning students. We wanted to have a better way to tell the students about what the library offers, how to use our services and resources and where to find them. It was a pretty good improvement.
This week the Services for Students page got an even sharper makeover. It kept all of its original content created in the fall AND was spiced up with more graphics and clearer ways to access the information.
Our hope is that this page will continue to grow and highlight the many offerings of Kennedy Library.
See the difference

We added images and links to helpful information — including our links to our Facebook pages, to Senior Projects, and to Science Cafe. We added photos of College Librarians with links to 24/7 Chat and regular library contact information.

Learning the Ins and Outs
Find Your Way Around and Use the Library pages stayed the same — the content on these pages is pretty solid with good information and links to get students started right. However — we are always looking for ways to improve the pages, so they may get some tweaking and improving in the months to come as well.
The Student Jobs page got a makeover in the middle of winter quarter. This change focused on improving the information available to students as well as adding more photographs and even a tutorial for using Mustang Jobs. We hope that this will become a helpful portal for current and future Library Student Assistants.
