I think it's going to work

I tested the Taxonomy idea I had on Literature and I think it will work. I'll just need to theme the taxonomy display, install and configure Taxonomy Menu module, and make sure Krista is okay with the subject guide just showing the categories, not listing out the websites below. I could still list out the websites, but it would be a lot more work.

I'm cautiously optimistic...

Web Picks craziness

Right now I'm trying to determine the best way to organize Recommended Websites. There are a TON of categories and subcategories and I'm thinking I'll try to make each category with subcategories its own vocabulary and then use Taxonomy menu to list them out. I'm not sure it'll work so I'm going to test it on Literature.

Wish me luck!

Once again I neglected to keep up with my progress here. Since the last entry I've done the following:

  • Adult Literacy and ESL pages, including a new Tutors section

  • Worked with Overdrive and our Network Administrator to change the eBranch to CyberShelf

    • Changed all eBranch graphics

    • Changed domain name to

    • Overdrive will update the look and feel of page

    • Sirsi administrator will update it in Workflows and replace the URL in the MARC records

  • Replaced the word "Branch" with "Library" throughout the new website

Next on the list is the Web Picks conversion. Wish me luck!

It's been awhile since I posted. I can only say I forgot to keep track of my progress here. Blame it on being a new mother...

Anyways, since I last wrote, we've done the following:

  • Fixed the authentication on our location-specific databases via EZProxy. Documentation for this is in my email, for future reference. Thanks to BPL!

  • Finished the Genealogy and Regional History pages

  • Launched alongside our current website!

So far feedback has been very positive. I just have a handful of things left to do, then hopefully soon we'll do the final launch!
