Campus libraries are making a substantial contribution to the design of the fully integrated CDL web site.  This web site, which will replace the current description-only web site, will be available on a trial basis in November and released in January.

The site design process has progressed quickly, thanks to enthusiastic input and directed feedback from many library staff polled across the system.  Attention has focused on the design of the directory of collections and services, which will allow collaborative maintenance and ease of searching while also supporting the goal of reducing duplicative effort across the campuses.  Technical services, public services, systems staff, and current web managers have reviewed design principles and established functional priorities for the first and later releases of this gateway to CDL’s collections and services.

Watch CDLINFO for updates as the November release date approaches.
