Website Redesign High-Level Goals

May 25, 2011

The SULAIR Website Redesign Project has officially kicked off! The project team is excited to be working with web consultants, Chapter Three, on the first big step--developing a detailed workplan for rolling out a new library website by Fall 2011. To help focus the project, we have developed the following high-level goals:

Website Redesign High-Level Goals

  1. Increase usage of the library website by Stanford scholars.
  2. Enable Stanford students, faculty, and others to discover and access relevant and timely information, resources, and library services.
  3. Convey the depth, breadth, and uniqueness of our collections and services.
  4. Establish the SULAIR website as a gateway for tools needed for deep scholarly engagement.
  5. Promote a strong, unified, coherent identity for SULAIR, establishing our website as an exemplar that binds the main library system, the branches, and enterprises, while acknowledging the uniqueness of individual units.
  6. Inspire support for SULAIR and its many activities among Stanford scholars, alumni and other donors.
  7. Make content creation and maintenance significantly easier for library staff.
  8. Commit to long-term website improvements through usability testing, web traffic analysis, and user feedback.

As always, we welcome your feedback on this important and exciting effort to improve our web presence.
