What will your group be working on for the next three months?
We have just begun to work on the LITA Documentation website. There is a need to address the organization of information on the site as well as the user experience design. We have formed a sub-committee to address the matter. This project will also serve as a way to test out WordPress themes and design elements for potential use on other LITA WordPress sites.
