Next week I will be attending ELUNA 2009 in Richmond, VA. ELUNA is the annual ExLibris North American conference. I hope to learn a lot about Voyager 7.0 and the future direction of ExLibris during the conference. To that end I will be moderating the following session:
V2. Using a Project Management Approach for Customizing WebVoyage 7.0.1
Vani Murthy, Library Technical Services Manager, Montgomery College
Brenda Braham, Digital Initiatives Librarian, Montgomery College
Jenny Hatleberg, Librarian, Montgomery College
This presentation will describe Montgomery College Libraries’ project management approach to customizing WebVoyage 7.0.1. Staff members from Technical Services, IT, Circulation and the Reference department were recruited to work on this project. We created 3 teams that focused on design, usability testing, and implementation. Each team was dependent on the research and subsequent recommendations of the others. We used LibGuides software as a communication tool, since we are geographically divided across three campuses. Presentation attendees will see demonstrations of our new OPAC and the LibGuides interface, and will leave with an understanding of the benefits & drawbacks of our approach.
