Our new software development groupThe UC Davis Library is starting a new Digital Applications Group to create web-based applications that deliver information to users wherever they happen to be, on mobiles, desktops — maybe even watches! In a mobile-first world, we are embarking on the construction of a new web site that will focus on what users want to find and do, enabling them to take information wherever they want; we’re building cool sites that will use crowdsourcing to aid the study of wine around the world; and we’re working with advanced triple stores and linked data to enable new services that span not just the campus, but libraries and museums across the world.
This unit has the unique opportunity to establish greenfield expectations and services for how a digital library can change lives, shape education, and deliver research to the furtherest corners of the world. If you think that a young woman in a rural village in Pakistan should have as much access to the latest studies in proteogenomics or the etiology of rice diseases as a researcher at Monsanto or Cargill, then we want you to work with us!
