Usability Results Very Promising!

I spent the past year working with some colleagues on a redesign for our Research Database Locator. That's the database mechanism we use to maintain & deliver the Libraries' electronic resources to our end users.

You can see the existing product (we call it the ERM, for "electronic resource manager") -- it can be a bit overwhelming, even to those in the know.

And here is the redesigned Research Database Locator, now in beta.

It looks nothing like I thought it would, but early usabilty results indicate that it is wildly usable!
