Web Re-Design Project
Robert & Imtiaz presented their project findings for redesign of DLIS website. Response regarding landing page links (limited to 5) needed to Robert & Imtiaz by Tuesday, April 12th.
Chris and Stacy reviewed the ALA accreditation presentation reports of a few Library Science programs and used these to prepare outlines for each section to assist the writers. They noted tables that were used as well as the position of these tables in the report (i.e., body of the report of Appendix)
Stacy: Standard I (Mission), Standard III (Faculty), Standard V (Administration)
Chris: Standard II (Curriculum), Standard IV (Students), Standard VI (Facilities)
Stacy and Chris made some recommendations:
- Use of headings to clearly identify the evidence being discussed
- Use of tables to present data and/or evidence can sometimes present information better than a narrative
Next meeting – scheduled for Tuesday, April 12th, 11am-1pm.
