WML Website

The Weinberg Memorial Library Website is the hub that brings together all of the online functionality in use by the University of Scranton’s Weinberg Memorial Library. My main roles connected to this website are systems integration and website and application development. Because the website design is bound by the stylesheets of the website of the University of Scranton as a whole, I have very little control over the design elements themselves.

My projects over the years have involved integrating many third-party services into the website to provide a seamless experience for library users, such as catalog and database vendors’ assets and other electronic resources, “ask a librarian” chat and email remote assistance software, journal indexing and search services, research guides, electronic reserves, custom forms for a wide range of library projects, blog integration via RSS feeds, calendar/hours integration and maintenance, mobile website features, dynamic staff directory, and a room reservation system. I also write or customize applications as necessary to support library faculty and administrative initiatives.
