New LSE homepage launches

LSE's homepage and associated top level web pages were re-launched today (Monday 23 June), unveiling a modern and eye catching new look.

The revised look and structure is designed to help users find information quicker and easier, whilst ensuring consistency across the site as a whole. The new structure allows you to browse by audience (Information for), topic (Information about) or department. Under these headings, the individual sites that make up the LSE website are presented by A-Z and popularity.

Most of the underlying pages have not changed. You will still be able to find everything you need. However, if you are having trouble, see the 'Help' link, which is in the header of every page sporting the standard template.

Tania Cammarano, web editor, said: 'When designing the new site, the aim was to create pages that catered to both internal and external audiences. It is important that the website is accessible, intuitive, consistent with the School's image, and cleanly designed. After consultation with members of LSE's community, the BSS Web Team has developed such a site. The home page is aimed at first time visitors whereas the second level pages, particular the 'Information for' pages, cater to the needs of individual audiences. If you are a member of staff, for example, it is recommended that you bookmark the 'Staff' page to get the best user experience.'

This is just the beginning for the new LSE website. It is a constantly evolving service with the next step being a redevelopment of the underlying template, which the BSS Web Team will initiate through a series of open meetings with the School community. Your feedback is extremely valuable and will help us to make a better website. In the meantime, please let us know what you think by using the 'Comment on this page' facility which is available via a link in the footer of all pages sporting the standard template.
