A partner is needed to develop/deploy new features into our existing website. Some coding skills and systems integration work will be necessary.
1-Determine the appropriate CMS which meets reqs; whether that be additional plugins to enable new features within our current Wordpress infrastructure, or use an entirely different solution.
2-Build the new features in such a fashion that can be tested and vetted. The final product should be maintainable by MAIN staff after work is completed.
This project will change the face of how library users search for services across our service area of 515,000+ people.
Instead of calling multiple public libraries to find out anything from which library offers color printing and is open on a Sunday in July to when can I register for a passport next in an evening, a user could simply enter the search parameters into our newly designed web tool and discover the answer for themselves almost instantaneously.
We just need somebody to help build it!
