Website and CLIOBeta Launch Update

As you are aware, we have postponed the relaunch of Library Web/CLIO from its initial proposed launch in mid-January.  Our new target launch date for both projects is early June. The new launch timeline allows the opportunity for for more adequate assessment of the new site structure, important technical improvements that result from assessment, communication and training opportunities for staff and faculty, and a marketing awareness campaign to highlight the site changes and encourage Columbia community input throughout the process. While CLIOBeta is, and will continue to be available for testing and use, you will receive communication about the Library Web preview site early next week. 

A detailed Assessment & Communications plan provides more details about the scope and phases of the plan. We have also provided an overall timeline for the relaunch on the blog and as a PDF.
