In three years' time since the radical change, AISR's departments grew and changed. Even AISR's name changed, from Academic Information Services & Research to Academic & Instructional Support & Resources. Learning resources, simulation, integrated curriculum support, enhanced media services all needed more presence and better navigation in the interface.

User surveys, focus groups, and JEFFLINE use statistics revealed a number of strengths and weaknesses of the 2001 navigation system.


New features of the 2004 interface included:

  • A color scheme that was much easier on the viewers' eyes.
  • Unified navigation for all AISR services and resources.
  • Cascading menus and upfront quick links for faster and easier access to core resources.
  • Direct searching of the library catalog (ThomCat) from the homepage and from the navigation bar.
  • My JEFFLINE sections (formerly called JEFFLINE Communities) for user groups who have unique materials.
  • Expanded content & easier access to Learning Resources and Medical Media Services pages.
  • A table of contents for the current issue of a monthly news magazine, the JEFFLINE Forum, located on the JEFFLINE homepage, so users could keep up to date with new resources and services.

This interface was released in July of 2004, and served until 2008.
