Issues & Tips

Metadata issues

Selecting minimal info for display

Feedback, Renew books, Check my favorites

Google Analytics

We only had programmer for ONE year

Responsive / adaptive design, ID mobile device as they access site, "Sniffing", CSS MediaQueries to ID screen size, iPads, don't automatically go to mobile, can access mobile with direct URL

Lessons Learned

Do research first

"Wd use it? Might? Wd not"

Get analytics in every page, Mobile aware, FYI, for apps, need to build it in

Research doesn't match behavior

Start small

Combine methods

We started platform agnostic, Mobile aware, some functions require app custom functions

PR!! promotion, marketing, "Is that the library in your pocket?", QR codes, Only 50 scans in 5 months, bookmarks, will push marketing in Fall


Barcode scan

Bert's webcam

Wayfinding within the library

Image collections

Augmented reality, Campus, Ann Arbor

Geo-location aware library info

Use mobile sites for kiosk, touchscreens
