Library News! New improved web interface rolls out on Mon. 6/8.

The Library is excited to roll out its new website on Monday morning, June 8. The new website is designed to improve the student research experience. The improvements do not end with the website! On Monday, June 8 the library is also debuting its newly designed research guides as well as the improved Library catalog. These changes are being implemented to achieve a cohesive look and experience for our users.

While it is our hope that the roll-outs will be unnoticeable to our users, if you run into any difficulties, please email the reference desk at reference@fairfield.edu or call the Library at 203-254-4000 ext. 2188.
