Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

The redesigned homepage was designed based upon feedback received from a number of student focus groups and includes their feedback in the design. 

The background images for the library homepage are taken from the Library Digital Collections and are intended to bring additional awareness of digitized resources offered globally by the University of Delaware Library. The originals of the digitized resources are accessible physically in Special Collections located on the second floor of the Morris Library.

“The library homepage is expected to evolve as technology, resources and services change. Enhancements to the library homepage are expected to be implemented over the summer as well as into the foreseeable future,” stated Susan Brynteson, vice provost and May Morris university librarian.

The newly designed library homepage was created under the leadership of Audrey Hamelers, assistant librarian in the Library Information Technology User Support Department of the University of Delaware Library, along with the support of a number of library staff members.
