The charge for this team is to design and restructure the main LIS website, which serves the entire Midd community and non-community members with information about our services and resources. The new site will enable the user to easily locate the information they need, be directed to the various service points and resources LIS can provide, and be easily updated and maintained.
What we want to accomplish: We are creating a presence for LIS within the College website. When we are finished users will easily navigate and use our web resources, and engage with library staff. When we are finished LIS staff will use the website to manage content and communicate with colleagues and users.
Why: The College website redesign; LIS requires a stronger presence on the web, one that is easily navigable and intuitive to use.
What’s in it for me: A website that allows users and staff to interact and connect with our resources and services.
We will create a new LIS web site that’s easy to use and easy to maintain. We’ll do much of the work ourselves, but we’ll call on others when we need additional skills and expertise. We’ll determine not only the site’s appearance, but also a workflow for creation and maintenance of content. User testing and ongoing assessment will inform our decisions.
Web team – vision statement.
The Web team will design, test and implement a new LIS Web presence.
The LIS web is used both to provide information about LIS and as a means to deliver services and provide access to resources.
The product will be tied in with the new College web design.
Our first priority will be usability. Other important considerations are ease of maintenance, and continued development.
