ALAO is looking ahead to reviewing our web presence. Membership chair, Alison Ricker coordinated Wallwisher comments about the website. Members of the Communications Review Committee, Melissa Bauer, Katie Gibson, and I will use these comments to inform a usability study, launching later this spring. The population we sample will be manageable (perhaps two or three dozen individuals), representative of the various types & sizes of institutions, and, otherwise, randomly chosen. The goal is to have any website redesigns complete before mid August. The usability study will also inform any changes that made be made to improve policies, procedures, scheduling, communications, etc.
