PURPOSE:
The AALLNET Strategic Planning Special Committee has the responsibility for overseeing the redesign of the AALL web site (AALLNET), which will include new navigation, graphics, branding and Web 2.O capabilities.

CHARGE: The Committee is responsible for overseeing the redesign of AALLNET. This redesign will establish strong, consistent branding, continually spotlight member benefits, offer educational programming and knowledge resources in a user friendly environment, build loyalty, and foster a strong sense of community and collaboration. The redesign will position AALLNET as the premier resource for law librarians, and will also allow for real time transactions via the association management system, iMIS.

  • Implementation of a content management system to improve content management and format consistency.
  • Clearly defined site policies, procedures and processes for content creation/maintenance, technology infrastructure and electronic communications.
  • Ability to manage and search archived content.

In creating the new AALLNET, the Committee will consult with AALL committees, SISs, Caucuses and entity webmasters and AALL staff. It will also keep AALL members and the Executive Board informed of its progress through regular communications to the membership.
