Charge

The work group is responsible for sustainable policies, procedures, technical systems, and staffing to maintain the Library’s web sites, including Library home page, and the CMS.

This includes assisting with the development and maintenance of unit and other specialized webpages for the Library.

The group ensures that Library web pages are usable, accessible, and meet the information seeking needs of the intended users.

Rules

  • The Web Group should be consulted with respect to any actions or decisions by other groups that could have an impact on the Library’s web sites.
  • The Web Group is responsible for any internal web services or APIs upon which the Library’s web sites may depend. They may work with other units in the Library in designing, developing,and maintaining these services, but they will act as the service owners.
  • This group is responsible for the accessibility of the Library’s web pages, ensuring that applicable accessibility regulations and best practices are followed.
  • This group is also responsible for ensuring that Library web pages are usable across a broad spectrum of devices and platforms; support for mobile and hand-held devices should be a priority. This group should be consulted prior to any unit within the Library engaging the services of a web design contractor or consultant from outside the Library.
  • While not necessarily the service owners, the Web group provides technical and administrative support for systems such as Omeka, LibGuides, and similar CMS-like systems which provide access to Library information and resources and which benefit from a similar look and feel to other Library web assets.
  • The Web Group is advised by the Web Content Sub-group which is chaired by the User Experience Librarian, Suzanne Chapman.
  • The members of the Web Content Sub-group are drawn from faculty, academic professionals, and staff members serving in non-technical service units and are appointed by the Web Group chair. They will serve a one-year term with unlimited renewals at the discretion of the Web Group chair and subject to the individual member’s interest.
  • The Web Content Sub-group helps formulate and recommend policies and services related to the management of web content, reviews content strategies, and assists in implementing specified content analysis, migration, and development tasks.
