Elaine Zhang (Drexel Library, Saint Joseph’s University, PA)

Elaine worked as a web developer using Adobe Illustrator to create maps of the library and converting them to the SVG format. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation.

Elaine also used other web technologies such as JavaScript, jQuery, JSON, and HTML5 to create interactive maps for the library. The web app designed by Elaine helps library users find information about library resources such as availability and location of study rooms, book call numbers, installed software packages on various computers across the library, etc.
