Library Re-Design 2020

You may have noticed the addition of the new YACPA logo to the library pages and a change in the colors for tabs in the library guides.

These changes are part of the winter long re-design of the library pages.  Most of the changes will happen in the background

and will be revealed in the spring when the new library is ready.

The library team thought that you might like to see some of the changes up front, so enjoy the logo and colors!


Stay tuned for the new library rollout in the spring.  Happy researching!
