The LibGuides 2 implementation project has moved out of the planning phase. The LibGuides 2 implementation group has approved documentation for the upcoming LibGuides 2 upgrade, including:
- A LibGuides best practices document that has gone to CRSC for vetting;
- A communications plan;
- LibGuide review instructions;
- Technical documentation; and
- A LibGuides styleguide that will also go to CRSC for vetting.
The LibGuides 2 implementation group is now meeting with YUL departments to inform LibGuide authors about the project and the work that LibGuide authors will need to do for the project to be successful. The LibGuides 2 Road Show, as it’s called internally, will run until April 15.
Many thanks and burnt offerings to Sarah Tudesco who has put together a Google Analytics statistics dashboard for LibGuide authors to use when they review their guides. The use of the dashboard is explained in the LibGuide review instructions and requires no knowledge of Google Analytics.
The LibGuide review instructions will be released to LibGuide authors in April. For an extremely brief overview of the roadmap for the LibGuides 2 upgrade, check out http://www.library.yale.edu/skw33/libguides-2-timeline.jpg.
Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks!
