Is your library website accessible to all?

As a librarian, you naturally want to ensure that your library is accessible to patrons of all ages and abilities?  We build ramps and elevators for people who use wheelchairs, scooters, and other mobility assistants to make sure they have access to every resource in our library.

Are you taking the same care to make sure that all of your patrons can access the resources on your website?

Library Consortium Website Development and Service Development Consultation

Developed a new website for Southern California Library Cooperative. The client was partway through the development of a new website when the contractor went out of business. The Galecia Group stepped in and helped SCLC complete the project. We worked with them to simplify the site to make it more manageable. We continue to provide Drupal maintenance support.

Statewide Library Project Website Development

The mission of the Rural Initiative Resources Clearinghouse (Resource Roundup) was to create and maintain an online archive of resources to support California's rural public library directors and staff in serving their public mission more efficiently. By seeking out and sharing examples of commonly needed documents, materials, and programs in all aspects of library operations and services, the Clearinghouse benefits rural libraries by eliminating the need to "reinvent the wheel" for every new policy, practice, procedure or project needed at the local level.

State Library Project Website Development, Hosting and Support

Project manager for redesign of library website. Project included graphically redesigning website and re-architecting the library’s web-based information, integrating an events calendar using PHPCalendar, integrating Contribute for content management and assisting with Movable Type integration for blogging.

Library Collaboration - Open Source - Open Libraries Project

Helped establish and  managed the Open Source Open Libraries Consortium in cooperation with Peninsula Library System and Califa. The goal of the consortia was to "empower libraries and library consortia by encouraging participation and collaboration in software products generally, and encouraging them to consider an Open Source Library System such as Koha or Evergreen."

Over the course of the project we moved 9 library systems to Koha and helped three library systems begin evaluating Evergreen and Fulfillment. The project was concluded in October, 2013.
