Library Community Web Guidelines

    Back in October, there was a discussion on the Code4Lib and LITA listservs about establishing some "official" web guidelines for the library community. The goal would be to publish a document that libraries could use to guide and justify decisions related to library websites.

    Many in the listservs thought that LITA would be a good fit for publishing such a document, and the User Experience group was mentioned in particular. Would others in the group be interested in participating in this project? I know a handful from Code4Lib are interested in helping. If it is more appropriate, I can look into forming a separate LITA interest group specifically for the purpose of this project.

    I created a Github repository for the project and thought the issue tracker and wiki features would be very useful for organizing the project. It's all placeholders right now, but the readme file gives a general sense of what I'm hoping we can accomplish.

    I would be interested in participating in this initiative.

    Thanks for getting the ball rolling.
