The Library Who Came In From The Cold
TIE3 Technology in Education
Location: Skyline I
MONDAY, 10:45 - 11:30 a.m.
In many academic institutions, libraries set up and operate their own web shop with impunity. Adrift from the IT mothership, they develop into silos of custom content management systems, unrelated color palettes and makeshift technical solutions. Between them and campus administration lies the weary patron, confused by the uneasy and fraught user experience. But what happens when the library is called back home? Learn how a site-wide redesign instigated the reunification of campus/library websites, and what it took to ensure the relative sanity of all involved.
