cleaning up after a messy website migration: how to start fresh when you can't start over

Presented at Confab Higher Ed, New Orleans, 11/5/2015.
CMS migrations, reorgs, changed administrative priorities, and other events can leave your governance and content out of control. We’ll use the IU Libraries’ 8000-page site migration and ongoing post-migration cleanup as a case study to talk about ways to dig out of holes you may have fallen – or even jumped headlong - into. You might make different choices next time, but you still have to deal with the aftermath of this time. The old cliché warns against “closing the barn door after the horse has bolted,” but with luck and perseverance, you can have a tidier barn and happier horses!

In this session you will learn about:

Breaking your website governance free of the organizational chart without frightening the HR office
Moving from a highly distributed content creation free-for-all to a more centralized governance model without making people feel like you took away their candy
Writing a new scope or mission statement for an existing website and dealing with content that no longer fits the revised mission

  25. 25. In some cases it has been easier to say what the library website is not – a catalog, a fixed-form document, a repository – although it facilitates access to these things, and perhaps makes them discoverable.
  26. 26. The library website is an integrated representation of the library, providing continuously updated content and tools to engage with the academic mission of the university.
  27. 27. It is constructed and maintained for the benefit of the user. Value is placed on consumption of content by the user rather than production of content by staff. From consensus to expertise: rethinking library web governance bit.ly/libwebmanifesto
