Managing Content and E-Resources on the NIST Virtual Library (NVL)
Susan L. Makar
In May 2002, the Information Services Division (ISD) of Technology Services (TS) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) implemented a content management system that greatly facilitates maintenance of the Division's Web site, the NIST Virtual Library (NVL). Content on the NVL is managed using an off-the-shelf content management system and an in-house SQL database. Together these systems provide a seamless interface for NVL users, while allowing ISD staff to easily and quickly create and edit web pages. This presentation will describe the team effort of Reference Services staff and Information Technology staff in designing, populating, implementing and maintaining these systems, as well as the training process that allows almost 20 ISD staff members to have ownership of various sections of the NVL.
