    Slightly off topic I’m afraid. I would like the link to the library at the top of the U of A page – it would be much more convenient than having to scroll down to the very bottom.

      A handy hint – the End button on the keyboard will take you to the bottom of the page.

        another handy hint – configure the site with end users in mind. Best practice does not have you using End tab to get to useful links within a website.

    I originally couldn’t find it on mobile for the life of me. I must have glossed over the dropdown too quickly. Thanks for the help!
