I'm probably starting to sound like a broken record, but I have made some more changes to the Library News categories that I believe will make the blog useful to readers and allow us to target content to specific areas of cybrary.
The original four categories were:
New Print Reference Sources
Favourite Print Reference Sources
New Online Sources
Favourite Online Sources
I had added a Databases category a few months ago but that seems redundant with both New and Favorite Online Sources, so I decided to combine the two under Databases and create a new category for Websites so that we can differentiate between websites that students might be interested in and databases.
That made me think that I should get rid of the New and Favourite Print Reference Sources Category and just have a Books Category since I think that most students don't differentiate reference books from the rest of the collection as long as they can find it, which we take care of when we include the call number in the blog entry.
So now the blog has the following Categories, including the News category which I added last wk.
The homepage has content from all the categories included.
I am trying to target content from different categories to different parts of the website. For example, if you go to any of the pages under "Articles and Databases", you will see that the news in the right column is limited only to items in the "Databases" category. I am trying to do the same thing with the "Books" category for the OPAC pages, but it's not working yet.
I've let this entry open for comments if anyone has questions, concerns or suggestions for other categories I may have missed.Posted by cminor at March 22, 2005 11:30 AM
