LibGuides 2 Implementation Group: 5/13/2015

Documentation, meeting minutes, and other information from the LibGuides 2 Implementation Group

Agenda

  • 10 min:  Review Process Update
  • 15 min:  Training outline
  • 15 min:  Migrated LibGuide review instructions

Minutes

Decisions:

  • Put out reminders for reviewing LibGuides early next week.
  • Next agenda will be about templates and pre-fab boxes.  Folks should review meeting minutes from February as well as http://guides.library.yale.edu/content/boxes and http://guides.library.yale.edu/guidelines to prepare for meeting.
  • The group should put together a list of open questions and concerns to send to LEC once the group disbands in July.

LibGuide review process

  • ICRS hasn't started yet.  No reminders have been sent.
  • Music has found it useful to export to HTML.  Removing boxes hasn't been a problem.
  • Should we remind folks that they can export guides they don't want to migrate?  Maybe let people know in the reminder.

Training outline

  • Editing profile should be moved to the beginning of training
  • Let people know that they can't add subjects to themselves ... they have to be added to subjects by an admin
  • Need to fix the feed used for Library News:  The current one stopped sending updates in February.

Open questions:

  • What are the pedagogical goals for creating LibGuides?
  • Should LibGuide authors record the time they spend on LibGuides in LibAnalytics as Outreach and/or Instruction?
  • When does someone create a LibGuide vs a web page?
