During the fall, ALA hired UserWorks to perform a usability assessment of the ALA Website. The assessment included a Web survey as well as personal and group interviews. A Web Planning Retreat has been scheduled for December 18th at ALA Headquarters in Chicago. The goal of the retreat according to Keith Michael Fiels, ALA Executive Director are to â€œanswer the question, “What would we do if we were starting with a clean slate?” and to develop a vision statement and an outline of a plan for the ideal website to serve our diverse needs.â€ A blog and a wiki have been created so anyone who is interested can follow the process. The planning session will be blogged so if you have a chance check it out the blog on December 18th and comment on the posts.
The participants as of December 1 are:
