Library Webmaster and Web Committee Chair:
All pages on the library website must be in a state of continuous improvement. When the process of migrating the website to the LibGuides CMS platform is completed, the Web Committee and page maintainers should be working to eliminate bad links, consolidate assets, ensure that content is current and relevant, and review the design of the site for accessibility and ease of use.
Communication from maintainers to the Web Committee should come through the shared e-mail address email@example.com, which is monitored by multiple Committee members as well as the Webmaster.
LibGuides allows for page maintainers to modify the Guides on which they have editing privileges. Changes to those Guides will then go through a Publishing Workflow process by which members of the Web Committee will review the changes.
Reviewers will be selected from the Web Committee membership to meet demand, with a goal of maintaining a 24-hour publishing turnaround time. If maintainers anticipate submitting a large number of pages in a short period of time, they are expected to contact the Webmaster beforehand. Reviewers may reach out to maintainers for further clarification or edits which could further delay the publishing timeline.
Although the LibGuides system uses the term "Owners", page maintainers are reminded that the website is the intellectual property of the University and, by extension, NSU Libraries. All content is under the control of the Executive Director in consultation with the Webmaster and the Committee.
Assignment and re-assignment of Editor and Owner roles for Guides in the system are at the discretion of the Web Committee.
The Library obtained its own webserver on May 1, 2000.
The Library began using LibGuides for course-specific information in 2012
The Library upgraded to LibGuides v2 in 2015
The Library upgraded to LibGuides CMS in 2018 and began the process of migrating from the HTML server to the CMS system.
The Chair of the Library Web Committee is appointed by the Executive Director and holds the title of Library Webmaster.
These policies and guidelines are current as of May 13, 2020 and have been approved by the Executive Director. Subject to modification by the Library Web Committee.
