Expanding Access
  • OAC redesign (Version 4.0)
  • Needs general look-and-feel update bring it up
    to 2009...
  • Users are often unclear about what theyre
    looking at (i.e., finding aids) many users pop
    in from Google searches
  • Users dont immediately understand that most
    materials are not online

22
Expanding Access
  • OAC redesign (Version 4.0)
  • Wed like to support collection descriptions that
    arent encoded in EAD Melvyl MARC records
  • We need to make some upgrades to the general
    technical infrastructure
