The Delaware County Library System's original website was saddled with a glut of information and confusing hierarchy. Although the site contained some incredibly useful information there was so much of it that you “couldn’t see the wood for the trees.” Our task was to create a responsive site that would allow breathing space for multiple forms of information, yet have those resources be easily navigable and understood. Simplifying complex information is something we believe we’re pretty good at and while this website redesign was a daunting challenge, we relished the opportunity to improve their site and enable their users to avail of all the amazing content the library system has to offer. Visually, the visible-grid design layout presents different categories that simply guides visitors to the various types of information. We consolidated a lot of the linked information from the old site into an e-Resource library where hundreds of links can be accessed through keyword categories listed down the side of the page. To keep up with the Library Systems daily happenings, a calendar of events is also featured on most pages. And, to top it off, the website works on mobile and surface devices, where a good portion of the Library Systems viewers access their site.
