Today I gave a talk at the Mobile technologies in libraries : information sharing event on “Creating a separate mobile library gateway with a framework called iUI – and why I wouldn’t do it again” (which I attempted to acronymise as “CASMLGWAFCiUIAWIWDIA”, but I don’t think it caught on).
As promised, the slides and the resources I mentioned are below.
What I forgot to mention was that having an in-house style guide can go some way to helping with all of this. Using the same framework across a number of pages of your site can help with navigation, and just keeps it all looking wonderful.
There are some examples of style guides out there – but I think it’s wonderful to have a look at the work that Starbucks do – so I’ve linked to their style guide below.
- Sheffield Hallam University Library Gateway
- Mobile version of Library Gateway
- There is no fold
