The new site is geared towards EIFL’s global audience of librarians, researchers, publishers, funders, policymakers and students, with easy-to-navigate and mobile-optimized pages.

On December 15, 2014, EIFL launched its brand-new website. With a modern design and enhanced functionality, the new website provides users with an intuitive and engaging browsing experience.

The new site is geared towards EIFL’s global audience of librarians, researchers, publishers, funders, policymakers and students, with easy-to-navigate and mobile-optimized pages.

“The concept and design of the new website appeals to our international audience and better reflects the important work being done by EIFL's team around the world,” says Simona Siad, EIFL’s Communications Manager. “The website is often our first point of contact with our audience, and as such our new site will play a key role in future communications and outreach strategies.”

 

WEBSITE FEATURES

The new eifl.net was designed by Gregoire Vella, a user interface designer, and developed by a team of developers from Gai Technologies, a boutique development company. The new site continues to use Drupal as a content management system.

The website is fully responsive, which means you can easily access the website from your smartphone or tablet. The fresh, contemporary and unified design across all platforms follows EIFL’s enhanced visual identity, and there is also a text-only version of the site for users living in low-bandwidth areas and countries. 

New features of the site include:

EIFL's new website was built to be  accessible for people with disabilities and follows the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. User testing was also conducted to ensure the usability of the site. The website looks and works best when viewed in Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
