Technology Prototyping Service -- Fall 2014
Last update: October 16, 2014
Library Website Redesign
Ongoing work in the new Library Homepage. Prototyping students are working on server side APIs that include Hours and Locations of Unit Libraries, and Room Reserve API. Staff are actively contributing to the rapid interface studies and graphic design elements needed to move project to completion. Gateway is slated to go live October 2014.
A pilot rollout of the Hoot course reserves wait list notification service is underway. The system allows desk staff to place a watch on an item so that the student can be notified by email or text message when the item is returned. Staff from the Undergrad Library and Main Stacks are using the software from October 16 until the end of the semester, providing bug reports and participating in focus groups on the service.
