Managing the process of building and maintaining an effective library website can be as challenging as designing the product itself. Web Project Management for Academic Libraries, written by Jody Condit Fagan and Jennifer A. Keach of James Madison University, offers best practices for managing successful projects related to the academic library website. Here are practical, real-world solutions to help web project managers and their teams plan, engage stakeholders, and lead organizations through change. Topics covered include the definition and responsibilities of a web project manager; necessary roles for the project team; effective communication practices; designing project workflow; executing the project; and usability testing and quality control. This book is essential reading not only for library staff who work as project managers or on web teams, but also for library administrators, library school faculty and students, and web consultants working with libraries.
