The Web and Software Engineering is responsible for several roles that help to fulfill the strategic vision of the Hesburgh Libraries. The software engineering team provides consultative services, designs and implements web based applications as well as data integration services, and has a focus on product delivery and continuous improvement of the digital services we support. We also have a focus on user centered design, and that is the primary focus of our user experience professional, as well as of the entire unit. Finally, this unit is a facilitator for communication both internally and externally, regarding the progression and improvement of the library's web services. In order to meet that need, we also employ a full time web analyst who is responsible for change management, documentation, research, change management, and internal instruction about changing, new, and potential technologies that we could take advantage of.
Please contact any of us if you have ideas for improvement, questions, or concerns.
