I miss the library pictures that the old site had. Can they be brought back? Please?

Thanks for the comment, Nick. We looked at different changes we could make within the main design intention of making the home page itself more usable, and this was one of the casualties, i.e., no pretty picture. There still is the graphic of the shield, but we'll have to look into ways we can make the site prettier. I think our plan is to increase the sub-pages with pictures, over time.

Could you use the box on the left with the open book in it? The Clemens and Alcuin pictures are so much more personal, and pretty.

A lot of people like to view the catalog of all the movies that the libraries own. Would it be possible to make this link more accessible? Right now you have to click on 1. Media Services 2. Video Cassette, DVD, & Laser Disc Movie Search 3. Movie Search (VHS, DVD, and Laser Disc) 4. Search Movies. That's 4 steps just to get the complete catalog of movies. It would be helpful if their was just one link right to the movie search page.

Thanks for your comment! If you select the link under "Books & Catalogs" on our new webpage, entitled "Media - CSB/SJU DVDs & more" it will take you to our catalog where you can only search for movies.

In response to the question "Could you use the box on the left with the open book in it?" I've checked with IT Services and it isn't possible with this template to replace the static image with the rotating image code.

In regards to the movie search. That link is helpful if you already know what movie you are looking for, but if you just wanted to view the whole catalog is there a way to do that from the new link or do you still have to go through the other 4 steps? That might be confusing.

Unfortunately, we could only shorten it down to 3 steps (A-Z site index to "M" for media and then your third step would be to select "Movie List Search".

The only other way would be to do a keyword search for "DVD", which should list pretty much everything for you.
