Updating the repository's look and feel - we want your feedback

As part of our continual efforts to improve user interaction, we have redesigned the front page and menus of the University of Liverpool Repository. The redesign is now available for testing and comment on the training server, which can be found at:

http://tept.liv.ac.uk

Please note that as this is a test server, it cannot be accessed outside of the university network. Off campus access can be gained by using Apps Anywhere

The main changes that have been made are:

  • The login and user functions have been incorporated into the left hand menu. This should give a more unified experience, with all links to actions now incorporated into the same place on screen.
  • Search has also been moved to the left hand side, making it always available.
  • A few small UI and functionality tweaks at the back end in response to various issues raised
We always welcome feedback - we are especially interested in hearing any views about this new front end before we make it live in the coming days. Please add them as a comment to this post, or send them via email to the author.
