New Look for the Home Page Search Box

Today, we are updating the library home page with a redesigned search box that offers easier and more intuitive access to key library resources students and faculty want. Featuring a more modern, clean look, this new design draws on insights gained from a year’s worth of research into the preferences and habits of our users. With their participation in three rounds of usability testing, Baruch students played a central role in shaping the look and feel of the search box.
