CRIV was approached by a member librarian of AALL who had concerns about changes made to the Thomson Reuters web store. CRIV spoke to Lori Hedstrom, National Manger of Librarian Relations for Thomson Reuters about this. Her response is below:
The site has undergone a redesign which was completed in two phases – both of which altered the materials mentioned.
During the first phase, the shipping schedule information, which is part of product details page, was removed. Through [the AALL member]’s feedback, as well as other customers’, we have restored that functionality.
During the second phase of the redesign, the “highlights and filing instructions” link was moved – an effort to improve the user experience by making the link available with the publication itself, eliminating the need to navigate through another tab.
These changes were made as part of an effort to improve the site and its functionality. We know our customers are being tasked to do more with less and our goal through this redesign was to ultimately make your interaction more seamless. I apologize for the inconvenience it caused.
I appreciate you reaching out to us. Please let me know if you have any further questions that I may be able to answer.
Thank you to Lori Hedstrom for her help with this issue.
