Please consider the following suggestion for improvement of the UWA library website (http://www.library.uwa.edu.au).
On Thursday 16th of March 2017 I visited the website to find a slideshow of images and text that displayed the following three messages:
1. New look for OneSearch. A new and improved OneSearch experience launching mid-February
2. New to UWA Library? Your ultimate guide to UWA Library services, spaces and resources
3. Medical & Dental Library closing for refurbishment, January - September 2017.
Services to be offered from other UWA Libraries
The Onesearch website changed during the summer and unfortunately has become much worse. I honestly can not work with the new layout of the Onesearch website. The design has too many bugs and glitches; For instance when you click on Load More when searching for a specific keyword, the page refreshes automatically and all the data and page numbers will be lost. With the old Onesearch I used to browse all of the pages available for a keyword, but the new Onesearch has made this task impossible.
Please provide a contact number or email address that allows me to directly talk to the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) staff on the library website. I have tried to arrange numerous meetings after applying multiple times for a software key for a necessary program related to my course. Without it I can't do the required online tutorial for my unit. A contact number or direct email address would be greatly appreciated as they are no longer situated on campus, making follow up extremely difficult!

Thanks for installing Chrome on all library computers. You guys are awesome. Now I can finally study.
As somebody trying to find a free place in the library that also has power points/ethernet ports, I'm finding it very difficult as people keep leaving their belongings (including expensive laptops!!) on desks as to reserve it. I don't believe this should be allowed as there are limited desks. I for one don't feel comfortable moving another persons stuff just to take 'their' desk. This happens on all floors of all libraries. I believe they should take their stuff with them and relinquish their place, and face the uncertainty of finding a place as the rest of us do.
