Selected Employment History Only: For a more comprehensive history, please see my Curriculum Vitae (PDF)..
In this position, I collaborate with users, University stakeholders, and library personnel to create a seamless, integrated web presence for the Libraries. This includes responsibility for web design and development, usability testing, server administration, and content management.
I coordinated access to over $3.5 million in annual electronic resource subscriptions, including customizing and configuring related software tools, maintaining relevant database information, troubleshooting reported issues, and providing front-line technical support.
I supervised and personally provided on-site instruction for multi-media computer lab and equipment.
This includes conducting user research, creating new content management strategies, and renovating the overall visual design and navigation.
Expected launch date: Summer 2009.
I helped design this site back in Summer 2007 shortly after I was hired as the Web Development Librarian for the Florida State University Libraries.
We were on a very short timeline, and emphasis was placed on making immediate improvements to the accessibility, usability, and overall branding of the site.
It was also based on Drupal.
In order to match the changes made to the main Libraries's site in 2007 (see above), we had to re-"skin" aspects of the online journal search interface.
This was one of the first websites I developed as part of a team. It was done as a student of the College of Information.
The basic layout of the site is the same as it was when we designed it; however, many aspects of the site have changed from our original version.
I helped design this site while working in the Digital Media Center at Florida State University Libraries.
I was commissioned to come up with a basic XHTML template for both the Digital Library Center and Digital Media Center using the same template.
(This site has also changed since its original creation.)
