Launch of New cIRcle Web Site

Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new web design for cIRcle, UBC’s Information Repository at http://circle.ubc.ca/ here at the University of British Columbia. New features and functions include:

Features:

  • “Image Carousel” – striking images linked to news items
  • “Did you know?” – quick facts about cIRcle
  • “News” – latest cIRcle & UBC news highlights
  • “Top 3 Items” – the three most frequently viewed cIRcle items

Functions (available since December 2009):

  • “Statistical information” – see and/or track item page views & file downloads
  • “Audiovisual streaming” – improved multimedia access
  • “File conversion” – convert from one file format to another
  • “Embargo feature” – access control management
  • “Campus Wide Login (CWL)” – via Shibboleth authentication
  • “Reporting Suite” – generate database usage reports

Who Re-designed the Site?

UBC Library staff worked closely with the Atmire company (atmire.com) to re-design the cIRcle website. We would like to thank our Atmire consultants, UBC Library Systems & Information Technology and the many UBC Library colleagues, supporters, and cIRcle end-users for their contributions.

    I’d like all this stuff to disappear. It’s an unnecessary distraction. At least give me a button to pause the carousel.

    Thanks for the comment, which we’ll bear in mind. The button to pause the carousel is the double vertical bar directly below the carousel image to the left of the << back arrow.
