Library Matters News Hub

In 2015-2016, I co-chaired the MU Libraries Public Relations and Outreach Committee.  We were asked by the library administration to design and build a site that would act as a hub for all the news from the various campus libraries.  Prior to this effort, there were nine separate blogs that acted as content silos, and as a result, announcements (and work) were duplicated by the various staff who tended to them.

news-hubBy combining all of the Libraries’ blogs into a central site, we were able to improve communications both internally and externally.  We also streamlined workflows for how announcements would be released and publicized.

I imported all of the previous blogs into this WordPress site and adapted a freely available template using PHP and CSS in order to fit our branding requirements and content display needs.
