Improving the hsls.pitt.edu Web Experience

Resourceful, current, and responsive: the new HSLS website aims to meet the needs of our users with an attractive new design that incorporates the information that a typical HSLS patron desires at their fingertips.

Coming soon, the new HSLS logo will direct you to hsls.pitt.edu.

Here’s a brief tour of the homepage:

Current hours, contact links, and remote access information appear at the top of the home page (and every HSLS page).

The prominent search bar can be toggled to search resources such as journals and books, e-book full-text search, or the cutting edge bioPreprint database search tool.

Services—these are the most requested services provided by HSLS librarians and staff. Find out how someone at HSLS can help you!

Resources—databases, journals, books, and other information resources accessible through HSLS.

Announcements and class schedules appear on the left, so you can quickly see what is happening at HSLS now or in the near future.

The Featured Links section directs users to exclusive services and resources provided by HSLS.

A special service or feature is highlighted near the footer of the page, which provides quick links to the information you access most often.

Whether you want to ask a question, find a resource, seek instruction, or access a service, hsls.pitt.edu is there for you!
