Lizzie Seiple – Summer 2015 – Zine Collection Website Redesign for UT’s Fine Arts Library

Seiple surveyed zine researchers and other users to determine what they want from an online interface. She created wireframes for this site, the user tested and refined them. Her recommendations report is useful for any zine collection looking to better serve its remote users.

Melissa Roberts – Spring 2016 – Platform Selection for the Portal to Austin Music History

Roberts considered various online platforms to determine the best tool for building the Portal to Austin Music History. She determined that a customized installation of Omeka.org, much like that developed for the initial prototype, would meet most of the project’s needs.

Sullivan wireframed, user tested, and iterated an online exhibit designed to engage the community and solicit contributions of metadata, and digital objects. You can read all about Kristin’s project on her website.
