Software & Web Services
The Software and Web Services (SWS) Unit provides strategic advice on technology and software selection foro the library; deploys and customizes software packages; and creates new applications and services for the library's distinctive technology infrastructure.
Some of our more recent projects include:
- The library website
- Map and Imagery Lab Topographic Map Indexes
In our role as software project architects for the library, we are active in research and planning of many projects. We collaborate with other units of the Library Information Systems Department and others throughout the library to identify the requirements for a new service, and how we can build an effective technology and service infrastructure to make it a success.
The SWS team leverages Open Source technologies as a means of cost-effective build-out of sophisticated technological services in the library.
