Project Details

What We Need
  • Feedback on the current website’s layout, user functionality, visual design, content, and other key features
  • Clear articulation of the Organization’s goals for the website
  • Recommendations for improvements to help achieve the Organization’s desired goals
  • Note: If you are looking for a more specific, in-depth audit of your website's design and usability, try our Website Usability Audit project
Additional Details

We are anticipating adding new material to our website and would like to do an audit of what is there now and how best to add the new material.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a functioning, maintained website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an idea of the things we want to add, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,762 , allowing us to digitize more material in the library for greater access.

This project is important because, library resources are digitized each year and put online, our patrons expect more virtual content and instructions on how to use digitized material, and COVID19 has made it clear that for the time being virtual events is where we need to focus.

Project Plan

Prep: Goal Setting
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of current website and any past analysis
  • Professional connects with Volunteer Manager for a brainstorming/overview session and gathers information on the Organization’s goals, target audiences and desired functionality or uses of the website
  • Professional and Volunteer Manager outline next steps and timeline for the project
Milestone 1: Initial Review & Feedback

  • Professional analyzes current site layout, visuals and content, and delivers a draft document detailing the strategies, objectives and recommended tactics for proposed changes to the website
  • Volunteer Manager reviews draft and provides feedback to the Professional
