Showcase Week 4: Chris Coughlan


Area of Interest: Web Content Management & Systems

Chris completed her practicum at the Community College of Aurora as a goal to gain experience in library and information systems, Megan Kinney and Chris set up the practicum to include work with their ILS (Koha) and web content management system (Drupal). Working with these systems helped her to better understand how a patron seeks and finds information. Chris now has a better understanding of usability and organization of websites.

Getting practical experience in these areas helped her to score a position as an information architect with Aten Design Group. Indeed, Chris is an inspiration to us all!
