LIS Projects

Web Restructure Project

LISPS has been meeting to discuss web relabeling, reclassification, and other needs.

ODWEBS has been converting to a Dreamweaver/Contribute server for the library faculty and administrative members to enjoy distributed, non-centralized, content provisioning.

The Adobe Contribute ® product can be used to create all types of web content into a sitewide set of harmonious templates with classified navigation. The LISPS labels and structures will be used.

The color scheme has been chosen and road-tested by the webmaster, but is still in some flux. You can view the color palette, a tetradic set chosen to be colorful without being outré or gaudy.

Monochromatic green/white combos were specifically rejected, as were those combos with small added complementary widgets. Yellow-green shades were rejected. Triadic sets were discarded as too "Christmas Oriented" in most cases.

Mapping color sets to subject areas was developed so that, for example, Green dominance will exist for (example) finding aids, dk brown for guides, light for cat 3, blue for cat 4, etc ... These visual cues should also extend to border, margins, little widgets, etc. All this is amazingly time consuming. Suggestions welcome -- right to agree or disagree reserved.
