Usable Library of the Month – Boston College

This month’s usable library is:

Boston College Library

What I like:

  • Newly redesigned, fully responsive site uses LibGuides CMS
  • Search results returned in “bento-box” style, with articles and books separated (see this article for more on bento box search)
  • Includes link to old library website to ease transition
  • Database dropdown under search box provides quick access to known resources
  • My Accounts link brings together disparate library account logins
  • Disclaimer:  I am employed by Boston College (so may be a bit biased!)
