Digital Library Quick Update

Last week we took a deep breath and demonstrated the Digital Library – YODL as it is now to be known (York Digital Library – geddit?) – to our pilot group of users, the academic staff in the History of Art department. I think we were all a bit nervous about what the reaction would be, but the demonstration was well attended, everyone seemed enthusiastic and the comments and suggestions made were very positive and constructive. It was a really useful experience attending this – as a technical person you always worry about producing something that is technically good but not what the users needed – and we have already had our first feedback suggestions from staff beginning to explore YODL.
