With more and more items moving into the equipment module, and more seats and spaces available for reservations, our LibCal homepage needed a completely new look. It also needed to be more mobile-friendly, as students wanted to make reservations from their phones. A new, more visually interesting and mobile-first page was launched right at the start of the pandemic. This turned out to be perfect timing as mobile use and the use of reservations increased during these times. A major goal was to use media queries to change the spaces buttons from the full page to the widget depending on screen size.
