MCL Volunteer Opportunity

Student Chapter of the

American Library Association

Where: Multnomah County Library

What: Help update their website!

When: To be completed by mid-December.

Who: An alumni from Emporia. She is a technical dynamo!

Details:

On Multnomah’s website, each subscription database has an associated

description file, a kind of more information/help page.

These files were originally written circa 1999, have not been

maintained, and didn’t age well because they weren’t designed to age

without maintenance.

MCL would like to have these files all updated and redesigned so that they will age

better, since MCL doesn’t have the resources to do frequent updating.

They need someone to help create a template and fill

it in for each subscription database. They are looking for 2-3 people

to work on this. No website skills necessary (BONUS: she is even willing to

add some web instruction in as the project unfolds, if you are interested.)

Must be comfortable with learning!!!

As a volunteer at MCL some paperwork is invovled. realtively painless.

They like to keep track of who is volunteering and how many hours.
