Responsive Digital Prairie

Upgrade brings improved accessibility and responsiveness to ODL Collections

Digital Prairie is your gateway to not only EBSCO and Britannica School resources, but also to ODL’s Digital Collections.

Until now, when viewing items and searches within the collections, the layout was unresponsive by default. The new version is more readable on mobile devices, tablets and various-sized screens. You will notice a few changes on the homepage and throughout the site, like a highlights section at the top. Overall, the arrangement of the website remains the same, so you should still be able to find all the features you have accessed previously.

This version upgrade also meets web accessibility guidelines established by the WCAG, and should improve the speed of content delivery to customers.

In addition, we are adding an SSL certificate to ensure the site and your information will be secured.

We hope you enjoy the new and improved Digital Prairie.
