The Road Less Traveled - One Agency's Quest to Deliver Exceptional Service And "UX" To State Government Employees

We are a small, mostly virtual library attached to the research arm of the Virginia Department of Transportation. As such, we're not the typical Springshare customer. We support about 100 researchers (mostly post-docs and grad students) at the Virginia Transportation Research Council (located at the University of Virginia) but we're trying to support another 5,200 VDOT knowledge workers (mostly engineers) statewide.

This presentation will cover how the VDOT communicates library information, created a mobile-first library website, and stayed in compliance with state security and regulations.

Training Session Software

For our sessions we use Zoom. There is a small browser plug in required for entering the webinar. It will download automatically when joining the webinar or can be downloaded in advance (Zoom Client for Meetings). For additional help using Zoom, check out our Trouble Shooting Guide.
