Some Redesigned Penn Web Sites: Improving Navigation and Access

Library | PennCard | PurchasingTransportation | UPM

Library

The new design of the Library's web site improves access to resources and services. The familiar arc and set of red balls that designate major categories remain, but have been integrated with new features which include direct access to resources through a search feature called "quick find,"a more effective display of e-sources, an enhanced Franklin Catalog search feature on all pages, mouseovers that provide explanatory information about links, and important information and service links on top level pages. See www.library.upenn.edu/.

PennCard

PennCard--the official University of Pennsylvania identification for students, faculty, staff, and other members of the Penn community--has a web site with information on obtaining a PennCard, reporting a lost or stolen card and accessing your PennCard photo. There is also information about PennCash, a convenient way to make cash purchases within the Penn community. Links on the left side of each page make navigating through the site very easy. See www.business-services.upenn.edu/penncard/.
