National Library of Ireland launches redesigned website

The National Library of Ireland's website – nli.ie – has been overhauled and redesigned. The result is a bold reincarnation with lots of white space, big images and fonts, and a fresh, modern vibe.

The site receives more than one million views a year

It's certainly very different. Take a look around.

I'm not wild about having to scroll past the supersized pics and text that present in desktop mode, especially when all I want are some navigation links, but the mobile view is a lot less scary!

Rather more importantly, I'd suggest that the link to 'Search the Library's ecatalogue' should be more prominent, especially in the desktop version.
