The Restructuring of the Portal at the Institut Pasteur Library: A Case Study
Medawar, Katia
Program: Electronic Library and Information Systems, v41 n1 p20-34 2007
Purpose: To describe the restructuring project of the portal BioLib at the Institut Pasteur Library in Paris and to share experiences with others facing similar challenges. Design/methodology/approach: Provides an outline of the history and the steps followed during the initial project (2001), an evaluation of the use of the portal and the stages in restructuring the portal for its subsequent relaunch in 2006. Findings: The initial portal was not used because of lack of a friendly interface and poor content. Information is provided about the concept and functionalities of a portal, what can go wrong, and how to make it survive. Originality/value: A useful source of information for professionals wishing to develop a portal or conduct a similar project with the "dos" and "taboos" to take into account.
