We have been very busy these last months building the new website. As we prepare to announce our launch date (coming soon!), we would like to share some designs with you. It was quite a task to come up with a design that fit in well with the Queen’s landscape and also suited our needs here at the Library. We are quite pleased with the end result. A big thank you to all the participants and collaborators in this process – we couldn’t have done it without your help.
