MLANET - Focus Group

On Tuesday afternoon, I particpated in a Focus Group discussing the major changes in store for the MLANET website. This small group, consisting of about 8 people, had many suggesions/comments/criticisms so as to make the website more user-friendly and informative.

I think there were some powerful suggestions about making Annual Conference proceedings and powerpoint slides available via the MLANET website. Other topics of discussion - create an MLA Wiki and host blogs through MLANET so that the community can contribute to ideas, information, and knowledge - without having to go through LISTSERVS. Improved search features were also highly recommended.

All in all, I think the discussion was contructive and useful, and the new and improved MLANET will be a great opportunity to push our profession forward.
