Many campuses have an unmet need for multiple easy-to-administer, searchable, web-accessible databases for departments, research centers, and other academic users. BGSU uses WordPress MU, the free open-source multiple blogging platform. Learn what administering WordPress MU entails, and how it can be used to create departmental library catalogs, digital resource databases, and databases of learning objects. Participants will follow the case study of a departmental video library, generate a list of possible uses for the academic environment, and explore existing and desired WordPress extensions to enhance this type of use.
