The Iowa City Public Library’s redesigned online calendar, known as Event Manager, will go live on Monday, September 26.
The program features a streamlined design to improve user experience, both for those adding meeting and program information to the calendars, and people searching for upcoming events.
“Part of our long-term strategic plan was to make improvements so that Event Manager is easier to navigate,” says Brent Palmer, the Library’s Information Technology Coordinator.
Elements were incorporated into the calendar to ensure an optimal viewing experience on both desktop computers and mobile devices. The public is encouraged to explore the new Event Manager and provide feedback on the survey located here.
The new Event Manager is the first part in the Library’s plan to redesign the entire website, again focusing on making it more user-friendly. ICPL plans to launch the new design in 2017.
“We look forward to sharing the redesigned calendar with our community and will continue to explore ways to improve users’ online experience,” Palmer says.
