We’ve got exciting news about epl.ca—it’s getting a makeover! On Tuesday, June 25 we’re upgrading to a new version of the software that powers our website.
What to Expect
During this upgrade, the website will be down for maintenance from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. However, many of our online services, such as My EPL Account, the catalogue and event registration, will still be available during this time. We suggest you bookmark the following pages to access them the morning of June 25:
We’ve divided our content into sections, with clear headings and links for quick and easy access to our most popular resources.
Discover related classes and events, items from our collection, online resources and more all on the same page!
Here’s a sneak peek at our new classes and events feed.
New "Explore" Page
A new Explore page lets you discover books, movies, events and more on our website. Browse related audiences, genres, topics and more by clicking on the category links shown at the bottom of each card (such as “Teens” or “Fantasy” under the “Poet Laureate Recommendations” example below). Or click “View All >” on the right hand side at the end of the carousel to explore more content.
The Explore page lets you browse the Library’s recommended content. Find what you’re looking for by filtering the categories shown below: Post Type (blog post, staff list, web page, etc.), Audience, Related Format, Program, Genre, Topic and/or Tag filters.
Once the website update is complete on June 25, 2019, you will be able to access the Explore page at: epl.ca/explore.
If you have any questions about these changes or need help using the new website, please contact us!
