Hi, I’m Pamela Akins, Community Engagement Specialist back with another update on the new ALA Connect.
Divisions and Round Tables now offer a special feature with the new ALA Connect; Uniquely branded spaces nested within the main ALA Connect site.
As mentioned before, these online spaces include a Home page, with the unit logo, Welcome message or slide deck and links to their websites and social media channels found at the eyebrow and footer sections of their home page.
Using the fly-out menus in the top left corner of every page, members can quickly navigate between Division and Round Table sites, easily navigating back to the main ALA Connect site using the logo button in the banner.
Each branded space has their own Public Repository, a digital area where publicly available content is stored and shared outside of the unit, to the public. What’s more, divisions are not limited in the number of public spaces they can post to; they can public area for each of its sections and division level committees if they choose!
Divisions and Round Tables also have their own directory, a listing of fellow members, that they can search and request to connect, within their unit. Once connected, they can view each other’s contributions and profile details. They can also conduct an advanced search, finding other members within their Division or Round Table by Location, Interest or Type of Responsibility.
Users can also conduct a division or round table specific search of content. Simply enter a term on the search bar of any specific Division or Round Table, and you will get a filtered list of results specific to that unit. Conversely, you can do a federated search across ALL of the sites, by entering your term on the main ALA Connect content search box.
Thanks again for your continued attention. Stay tuned for the next update in this series, entitled, “Administrative Options in the new ALA Connect.”
