Contact Us link changes

were made today in response to our new Answer Squad service. In order to consolidate the various ways the public can contact us, a new Contact Us page was created. Links in some pages (such as Interlibrary Loan and Using Computers) now go to the new page instead of to the How are we doing page.

With the new Answer Squad service, patrons can type in their questions to see if an answer is already in the system or they can text us with questions at 303-720-7832.

Russian Page Changes

Today, with the magic of code and talented staff changes were made to the Russian page:
  • you now see a graphic for the feature story instead of image and text. This falls more in line with other interior page looks. The feature story link goes to a list of Russian titles recently received.
  • the top carousel has 2 links. unless you can read Russian you won't know that the first one says Coming Soon and the 2nd link says Katya Recommends.
  • on the Coming Soon page, there is a list of facets on the left which are relevant subject headings. As new titles are added, this list will grow.
Changes were made to improve the backend work of providing new titles for Russian-speaking patrons. We now have the ability to pull in material covers, too, which were previously unaccessible to us.
