Staffweb started in 1997as Staff Resources, renamed and revamped in 2001 as Staffweb and again in 2005. contained web pages edited in HTML by some staff from each unit, updated overnight;
StaffWiki existed alongside StaffWeb beginning in 2006. The wiki was easy to add to and update. Very quickly teams and groups adapted to using the wiki for the online workspace where they could manage their internal documents. Like ducks to water, we adapted! It became so popular, that soon there were concerns about what the wiki couldn’t do. IT was hosted outside of the university so was our info safe? So many documents seemed abandoned or no longer needed but were in prime real-estate locations they cluttered the wiki. We needed another more robust tool! At the same time, the teams and groups were looking at how me could update our PUBLIC web site. New studies indicated what users wanted and it wasn’t on our site. We needed to improve.
SOS began some research and testing and began to seriously look at a product called SharePoint. Wikipedia has a good description of this product. The libraries bought the hard and software needed for this change. Sos Began customizing Sharepoint for the libraries and then TA-DA
LibWorks was born. LibWorks is the name of the staff side of information sharing in SharePoint. Developing the public face of the libraries is the next step in adapting SharePoint.
