WELCOME TO CMLIBRARY.ORG
Our task was to strip the UX down to an easily navigable path and show patrons very directly where they wanted to go. Analytics, focus groups, and library committees helped us narrow these destinations down to 9 routes. Our original recommendation is seen here, and a variation has been implemented on the current site.
THE ABOUT PAGE
The Library as an institution is at a pivotal place. With the digital revolution comes many questions about its longevity, relevance, and purpose. We were honored to walk through these questions and lead conversations about virtual impact, and listen to many passionate librarians and patrons craft the tenets here:
Library as Community Services Business
Library as Place
Library as Leader
Library as Community Strategy
WIDGETS AND PLUGINS
Understanding the nuanced backend structure of scheduling and filtering was a lesson in calibration. Here's an early proposed user flow on the Jobs page.
THE MOBILE APP
One of our earliest discussions was centered around having access to the entire library experience - in your pocket. With much research and wire framing, we continued to explore the best way to present the loyal patron with a mobile app and digital library card.
