My Professional Portfolio My Professional Portfolio Presentation Transcript

  • 2010 UMUC Mobile Technology Mock-up As a member of UMUC ILS’ Mobile Technologies Task Group, I developed an interactive mock-up of how the Task Group envisioned the UMUC Library’s services being optimally accessible to students using a mobile device. I used Adobe Illustrator to design the icons, as well as the ‘Info2Go’ logo. I then used Microsoft PowerPoint to make the various screens interactively link to each other. After demonstrating the mock-up during a Reference Team meeting, the Task Group’s proposal was accepted.
  • 2009 SharePoint Implementation In May 2009, I began researching Microsoft SharePoint’s features as a potential collaborative and document storage environment. After developing best practices and pointed strategies, my colleagues in the Document Management Team moved successfully into SharePoint. The following screenshots are examples of the various ways the Team now uses the product.
  • Document Management’s SharePoint home page. I developed the arrangement of ‘Web Parts’ to make the home page as efficient as possible.
  • An example of one of Document Management’s 169 (and counting) wiki pages. I developed a series of wiki pages that assist users in developing SharePoint sites of their own. Other ILS Departments, such as Systems, E-Reserves, and E-Resources have consulted these pages.
  • SharePoint’s Discussion Board Feature.
  • The technicians on Library is essential, as I encouraged wiki responsibilities use screenshots to explain various SharePoint’s Photo the Document Management Team rotatepage creators toand schedule them in SharePoint. circ/ILL procedures.
  • 2008 Career & Job Search Libguide Two months after being employed at UMUC, I volunteered to help create and develop a Libguide that focused on resources for students searching for careers. In early 2010, my co-creator and I were nominated by Springshare (the company that owns the Libguide product) as one of their “best of” guides. Visit the Libguide by clicking here.
  • My co-creator and I discovered, arranged, and determined how best to display the various resources UMUC (and the free web) had to offer students. We exploited features like RSS feeds to maintain constant currency, in addition to multimedia (like embedded YouTube videos) to engage the user.
