Mary Ochs and Dean B. Krafft

Taking on new roles in knowledge management for the university requires new skill sets and new relationships, but the time-honored skills of librarians and library IT staff translate very effectively through VIVO. VIVO creates a research information network within a university that connects via linked data across institutions, adding context to search while exposing scholarship, datasets, collaboration, and impact beyond the library and the university. This overview of the motivations and experience of VIVO in one institution, from both the technical and administrative perspective, will be valuable to other institutions considering VIVO or any researcher information platform.

Mary Ochs is Director of Albert R. Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.

Dean B. Krafft is Chief Technology Strategist and Director of IT, Cornell University Library, Ithaca, NY

Most redesigns  involve exhaustive plans, dense reports, and thorough documentation of site requirements. When the website is perfected, this brand new site is rolled out to users. This is often a lengthy process.

Description: Presentations describing the steps involved in a library website redesign are ubiquitous. Most redesigns  involve exhaustive plans, dense reports, and thorough documentation of site requirements. When the website is perfected, this brand new site is rolled out to users. This is often a lengthy process. 

The principals of Agile development champion interactions over processes, working software over comprehensive documentation and responding to change over following a plan. These methods encourage small, iterative changes on a rapid development and delivery cycle. This allows developers to respond to needs more quickly and decreases the cognitive load on users while allowing them to more 
easily adapt to change. 

This presentation makes the case that library websites should adopt Agile practices. Small improvements through iterative changes allow users to adapt and increase user satisfaction.
