Work with the Web Services Team to communicate with contributors and the Libraries as a whole about assessment findings, best practices, accessibility needs and standards, and emerging technologies as well as industry standards (and how these should/might be integrated into the current Libraries Web platforms and presence). 
Promote staff awareness of the Libraries web presence and of issues and technologies related to library initiatives and services; monitor, identify, and consider innovations in the uses of technology for the delivery of resources, services, and information; and participate in project review, analysis, development, planning, and assessment, working as a team member with Libraries staff, University partners, and external vendors.
