In early 2021 I migrated the contents of the Orbis Cascade Alliance website from a proprietary CMS into WordPress. Improvements included a more usable search of pages and shared documents in Google Drive, a directory of member staff serving in Alliance roles, and automated event calendars.
I set up a hosted server with WordPress for the Oregon Library Association (OLA) and built the 2020 conference website. I customized the Conference Scheduler plugin to display the online program as a free alternative to Sched.
In 2018 I built a "bento box" federated search that queries several popular databases and displays the results by resource type. Additional features include autocomplete suggestions, a "Did You Mean" feature, and recommended resources for keywords based on Library of Congress subject headings.
In 2017 I redesigned the Barber Library website in the college's new CMS, OmniUpdate. I conducted usability testing of the homepage with thirty-three students and presented the findings at Online Northwest 2018.
I built a WordPress plugin for the Open Oregon Resources page that displays Google Form entries of OER adoptions from instructors around the state. The additional Z-Degree page suggests open resources for high-enrollment courses that make up an AAOT degree, and the My Z-Degree application helps colleges construct their own zero-textbook-cost degree pathways.
I updated Bill Jones's Primo addon for ILLiad to work with the New UI. Written in Lua, the addon performs automated searches by ISXN or title for an interlibrary loan request, and users can import local holdings information back into the request form. Settings accommodate both Primo VE and Back Office installations.
Virtual Library Tour
In summer 2020, I took spherical photographs of COCC Barber Library and used the H5P WordPress plugin to build a virtual tour of the building.
Children's Literature and Equity Resource Center (CLERC) at COCC Barber Library
I filmed, edited, and narrated a video showcasing CLERC to show at the Oregon Library Association 2020 conference.
