LIS Website Information Architecture

Team, please find the new article here, and have at it!:

LIS Website Information Architecture

(Also linked from our team wiki page.)

FYI: This follows the IA documents White Whale created for other parts of the College web redo project. It’s primarily a high-level guide to page & subpage structure, not a detailed list of page contents (though there are some content recommendations in the notes sections). See middfiles:\orgs\WebMakeover\IA Documents for examples (I used Academics when creating the wiki page.)

Agenda for Wednesday 9/16

Great news!
Tonya from White Whale will be able to meet with us next Wednesday at our regularly scheduled meeting time. I have changed the meeting location to Lib 221. Hope this works for everyone – this opportunity to meet with WW/Tonya came up rather suddenly. Thanks for arranging this, Ian!

Information Architecture discussion with Tonya from WW

So that we can dedicate the full meeting to this topic, I propose that we vote on the One-Blog readiness at our Thursday meeting.

Please post suggestions for questions we’d like to ask Tonya about the site IA in the comments section of this post.

Offices & Services Information Architecture

You can read the full first draft of the O&S IA in this Word document. This section is where most of the links to LIS and LIS related services will be. There will very likely also be a link to the LIS landing page in the Quick Links section of the footer, since Mike Roy wants there to be. Look over the full list in the document and add to the comments if there are any sections (with regard to LIS) that you think are misplaced, missing, or should be removed. For example, I see a link to “Web Services” in the list. My workgroup has a site on the website, but there’s very rarely any useful information for us to add to the site. I don’t think Web Services needs a web presence, since the whole site really is my group’s web presence. Also, I think the LIS link under Technology is redundant since every other link under Technology goes to an LIS maintained site about Technology.

What else?

Here is a list of the LIS related links I found in each section:

Library & Information Services
