The key changes on the website include:
The removal of the left-hand navigation on the homepage makes navigation clearer;
- The horizontal navigation, which has been sorted into the four key user-focused entries to the site: "Content", "Using", "Buying" and "Implementation", provides a clear starting point for users;
The user-focused entries are replicated in boxes on the homepage that contain quick links to the most-used information in the lower level details pages. This allows you to get to the information you want in one click rather than three or more;
- The use of drop-down boxes and quick links on the lower-level detail pages also makes finding information quicker. You no longer need to scroll down to find information and you can see at a glance what is available in each area of the website;
- An easy-to-use feedback mechanism has been installed to gather thoughts and improve the site according to your needs;
There is now a news feed on the homepage from the revamped News & Updates page, which includes an easy-to-view archive;
- The Online Books Locator, a new searchable database, allows you to search for Online Books titles and build your collection for submission to ScienceDirect. The database also lets you create a wish list for the library.
