Evergreen Communications Committee Update:
The Evergreen Communications Committee was formed at the Evergreen 2010
Conference and has been charged with helping to organize (and possibly
develop) the online resources needed by the greater Evergreen community.
The Committee has decided that one of our priorities should be to identify
all the user groups, undertake a needs assessment process, and perform a
content inventory in order to develop a plan for revamping the
evergreen-ils.org website. The goal is to make it easier for the various
user communities (developers, Evergreen users, Evergreen project managers,
and the maybe-users) to plug in, and find what they need. We believe that
much of the content is out there, but it could be better organized. And, we
hope to lower the threshold for getting more people involved in contributing
content and maintaining the site.
As a first step, we have consulted with many of the original developers of
the Evergreen website including the folks at Georgia PINES (Elizabeth
McKinney and Chris Sharp), Equinox (Jason Etheridge), and Dan Scott. They
will act as advisors as we move forward with this website planning project.
The Communications Committee has created a smaller Website Planning Team to
focus on this work. The Website Planning Team is being led by Jim Craner
(RSCEL website developer and a long time member of other open source
communities and community development projects).
The Website Planning Team currently consists of the following:
-Jim Craner (Galecia Project Manager/Drupal Developer)
-Lori Ayre (Galecia/KCLS IMLS Consultant)
-Anoop Atre, PALS (Minnesota)
-Amy Terlaga, Bibliomation (Connecticut)
-June Rayner, EINetwork (Pennsylvania)
If you would like to serve on the Website Planning Team or if you would like
to help in the evaluation and improvement of the website (e.g., usability
testing), please email Lori Ayre at lori.ayre at galecia.com.
Note: The Evergreen Communications Committee is a sub-committee of the
Evergreen Governance Committee, the group responsible for forming the legal
entity (often referred to as the Evergreen Foundation) that will hold
Evergreen assets on behalf of the community. This work is in process.
