Project Goals / Objectives

  • Reduce content replication across the site. This means more concise, actionable writing and organization. The current writing on the website feels like a formal paper on the topic of copyright, so one page may give an introduction to a topic, but then the user has to go to a sub-page to get the full story.

  • Make the content more accessible (in writing, tone) to students, faculty, and librarians for copyright education. Prioritize content, so that items that are likely to be used often are more prominent on the website, while items that have more specific/rare use cases are de-emphasized (such as the TEACH Act page.)

  • Establish guidelines for how to handle new content on the website

    • Define website’s scope (what belongs on the site, what doesn’t)

    • How to write for the web (including guidelines for organization and how and when to separate things into multiple pages)

    • Google Analytics: setting up the account; defining KPIs; how to analyze reports to guide website maintenance

    • Governance guidelines, with a committee in mind. Includes recommendations about how often to review and update content (quarterly, bi-annually, etc.).
