September library website update

Example of Top Hit for search on "wireless"

September was a busy month for the library website team. We officially launched the new site on August 28, and have been steadily adding content, features, and functionality since them.  Below is a summary of the Library website work accomplished in September. 

Patron-facing changes and enhancements:

  • Updated the footer at the bottom of every page to make the Stanford University logo link to the Stanford homepage
  • Updated the design of the “Page not Found” page to make it more user-friendly
  • Added LOCKSS to the About page
  • Added links to eJournals under Research Support drop-down and under main search box on homepage
  • Set up Google site map feed to ensure new content is indexed and findable via Google search quickly
  • Added images to Department pages
  • Added keywords and “top hit” status as appropriate to various pages to ensure accurate search results

 Content creation changes and enhancements:

  • Fixed misaligned WYSIWYG toolbar for News content type
  • Implemented de-duplication feature for generating list of Guides by subject for branch microsites, so that guides with multiple subjects are listed only once
  • Added “Publish” option for blog posts (in addition to Save option)
  • Made selected changes/additions to the Subjects list and updated display of subjects to alphabetical

 In addition to the specific work noted above, members of the Library Website Redesign project team and the Online Experience Group have:

  • Created, modified, and edited significant amounts of content in response to user feedback
  • Provided training and trouble-shooting support to content creators throughout SUL
  • Fielded approximately 200 feedback emails

 

A big thanks to all those who have worked on the site this month, especially those of you who have taken the time to send in your feedback.
