Review of last meeting

Progress reports

  • Photo info page No progress since last week.
    • Joy made great progress on the "specs" and requirements for the photos.
    • To DO: 1) fill in UGA prizes; 2) wordsmith: Review, get ready to post.
  • Newspapers section: Your feedback was INVALUABLE! The discussion today should move us forward far more quickly in this and other subjects.
  • Tips look and feel. Played with a couple. What do you think?

Idea share

Starting/Ending Dates in top table

  • Red Book shows county records only, with ending dates when state records began. What should our top table show?
    • Would users be helped more by including both state and county level in the top chart, or only including county level?
    • Or should that be explained under the topic, leaving the top table more simple?

Tasks to write this week


Libraries Discussion, con't

  • Create a format page for gathering information about Utah libraries and their colletions: first focus - local (rural areas) libraries?
  • What do we put in the "Libraries" area of each county: View Albany County, NY example
    • List every possible library?
    • List only those which may have a dedicated room or collection? (And let people work with them to fill in the form as they wish?)
    • Other:


Summary of decisions to this point in the conversation

  • Don’t want long lists of anything, including libraries, unless it’s a complied list on another page
  • Link to Utah Archives and Libraries page from each county
  • We will use a format for gathering information. Format not yet decided.
  • Pages created to link to Libraries and museums – so they can be used over and over
  • Pictures of Libraries would be helpful
