Books In Print® and Resources for College Libraries™ are getting a facelift! This summer, both Books In Print® and Resources for College Libraries™ will be updating their look to make it easier to view the site on all devices. We’ve incorporated responsive design into the platform and enhanced the look and feel of the site.

The benefits of the update are a less cluttered page display, as well as an optimal viewing experience on any device used to access these databases. Pages will load faster, but functionality remains the same. The work flow for Books in Print® and Resources for College Libraries™ will remain consistent, and will not be restricted by the size of your screen.

With the optimization of the display, we hope that collection development will become a more intuitive experience. Look for these new changes in the summer of 2015.


- New User Interface

- Responsive Design using ProQuest UI (Twitter Bootstrap) framework for UI responsive design
