Research at Yale is an audience-driven web portal developed for the Provost’s Office to centralize information about Yale’s research processes and resources. This site is primarily a catalog of hundreds of links and required a robust architecture, taxonomy, views, and paragraph display to manage, filter and display the content. It also utilizes the university’s Bedework and RSS feeds to display customized calendar and news pages.
I worked with a committee of staff from Yale’s archives, libraries and museums to create this portal website to bring together resources and information about primary source material throughout the university. This visually appealing site uses the basic YaleSites Drupal 7 template with CSS customization to help users navigate quickly through the portal to the content resources available elsewhere in the university’s webspace. Accessibility and Usability were the guiding principles in the site design and architecture.
