Content and Workflow Management for Library Websites: Case Studies
Yu, Holly, Ed.
Information Science Publishing
Using database-driven web pages or web content management (WCM) systems to manage increasingly diverse web content and to streamline workflows is a commonly practiced solution recognized in libraries today. However, limited library web content management models and funding constraints prevent many libraries from purchasing commercially available WCM systems. And, the lack of much needed technical expertise in building in-house WCM systems presents a great challenge for libraries of all types. "Content and Workflow Management for Library Websites: Case Studies" provides practical and applicable web content management solutions through case studies. It contains successful database-to-web applications as employed in a variety of academic libraries. The applications vary in scope and cover a range of practical how-to-do-it examples from database-driven web development, locally created web content management systems, systems for distributing content management responsibilities, dynamic content delivery, to open source tools, such as MySQL and PHP to manage the content. Issues and challenges associated with the development process are discussed. Authors will also discuss detours, sand traps, and missteps necessary to a real learning process. Chapters of this book include: (1) Library Web Content Management (Holly Yu); (2) Methods and Tools for Managing Library Web Content (Johan Ragetli); (3) Developing a Distributed Web Publishing System at CSU Sacramento Library (Juan Rodriguez and Andy Osburn); (4) Indiana University Bloomington Libraries Presents Organization to the Users and Power to the People (Diane Dallis and Doug Ryner); (5) ScratchPad (Laura Cohen, Matthew Calsada, and Frederick Jeziorkowski); (6) Website Maintenance Workflow at a Medium-Sized University Library (Michelle Mach); (7) PHP and PostgreSQL Web Content Management Systems at Western Michigan University Libraries (Michael Whang); (8) Database-Driven Web Pages Using Only JavaScript (Stephen Sottong); (9) Tactical Electric Power Digital Library (Anne Donovan and Michael Nomura); and (10) Developing Committees to Create a Web Content Management System (Sarah Robbins and Debra Engel).
