The Lloyd Sealy Library launched an updated look for the website on August 7, 2017. We have refreshed the color scheme, improved mobile responsiveness, increased accessibility, and simplified the main search box. Once the semester is underway, you'll also see an interactive "Chat with a librarian" box on the homepage during chat reference hours.
A "Preview" site was available for public testing and feedback for two weeks prior to the launch. The website's new look was also tested for usability with 19 John Jay students in Spring 2017.

About the search box: The biggest change is the search box on the home page. We have simplified this search box to make finding library materials even faster and easier using OneSearch, based on the data we collected in a usability study. All search options, including CUNY+, are still available. (More about OneSearch.)
Another important update: OneSearch also has a new look in time for Fall 2017, courtesy of CUNY's Office of Library Services. John Jay implemented the new user interface on August 21, 2017.
We value all feedback about the library website from library users! Feedback form (anonymous) »
