Other web-related news and updates

  • Removing the Add This button bar.
  • Consolidating “Check your account” and “Renew items” links, since VuFind does the latter very well.
  • Google Scholar ( now knows our journal holdings and is an all (almost)-in-one journal article search. EZProxy knows about it, and Find It @ York links show to remote users. (A Lupton)

Content Management System (W Denton, R Thompson)

Update on discussion at Library Computing Committee. See Content Management System Review.

Mobile interface (W Denton)

W Denton spoke to the Library Student Advisory Group the day after the last Web Committee meeting. The Mobile Strategies and Applications Working Group met in March. W Denton will give an update. The big decision is that there will be a mobile-friendly York web site in August for the new school year.
