New York, August 10, 2011 – The website for EasyBib.com, the world's largest online bibliography service, has been newly redesigned and enhanced, to make navigation even more intuitive for students, instructors and librarians.
As part of the redesign process, every part of the site was scrutinized to make sure it was as up-to-date and user-friendly as possible. Now, with the redesign, writers will have a more robust EasyBib experience when they take advantage of these new features:
- A large, easy-to-use footer, to navigate to any section of the website
- Bubo, the mascot, which will playfully provide updates
- The site's blog, redesigned to host fun student-related content, as well as EasyBib updates
- A Google Translate link allowing the site to be read in many different languages
- Advertisements for the free service that are designed to blend well with the rest of the site
In addition, the redesign will make it easier for writers to use some of the great newer features of the site. One recently-added feature is the iPhone application, which makes it possible to use an iPhone to quickly scan the barcode of a book and get an accurate MLA, APA, or Chicago style citation. Also recently added to the site is the Website Evaluation Tool, which shows researchers which resources are the most credible to cite and helps them understand the criteria used to evaluate those resources.
"Even though we had a design change a little over year ago, we continuously think about how to improve the experience for our 27 million users, and design is a large part of that," commented Neal Taparia, EasyBib co-founder. "This site now has a modern look consistent with the other websites students frequent and it's even more intuitive and easier to navigate. Plus Bubo, the new mascot, will be a fun way to share information with our users."
