Answers from Joe (paraphrased)

1. Can we have a folder in middfiles for documents related to the LIS web redo?

Sure. Just create a new folder in the Web Redo Project Managers area for LIS.

2. When will the next round(s) of Drupal training be offered?

A second round of test training will be offered to the Project Managers group starting the week of 9/21. LIS Website Team members may request to attend as may the LIS Project Managers, though it would be a good idea to ensure that any who do attend are caught up on the current process, workbook, etc. Also, all involved should understand that they probably won’t be able to immediately go back and edit their site in Drupal after these sessions. There will be training work shops and sessions offered later in October for content editors at which point people should be doing content editing in the Drupal CMS.

3.  Can we schedule a meeting with White Whale during their visit?

Probably. Joe is, at the (not so) very least going to schedule a meeting with Tonya, who is responsible for the IA & Content Recommendations documents. I have a feeling that most of our questions will involve her. Joe will try to have the others from White Whale present for this meeting, if schedules allow. We should have a list of questions we want to ask going into the meeting. They will be on campus the week of 9/14.

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:
