The Redesign Process

The Redesign Team is the group that is overseeing the Libraries' Website Redesign project. We began meeting in 2010 (wow!) to determine the scope, goals, vision, and shape of the project, and to define the process(es) we would use to govern the redesign project. The team has also included, and benefited from, Jen Rutner (our former Assessment Librarian) and Emily Donahue (our former Marketing Coordinator). Our overarching goal is to have a responsive, user-driven site that is touch-screen friendly, follows basic usability and UX principles, and is flexible enough to allow us to respond to evolving technologies, needs, and expectations. Information about our design principles, our timeline, and a description of the redesign working group are all available here. We will continue to update the milestones and timeline as we progress. There will also be announcements posted here about usability testing, feedback mechanisms, and information sessions about the redesign. There will be opportunities for staff to see our progress and initial designs as part of our information sessions. We will share the new design internally by 15 November 2012.
