Description

Like most libraries, the MSU Libraries has an 'Ask a Librarian' service which provides several options for patrons to contact librarians. In the process of making iterative changes to the website, we decided it was time to update the legacy 'Ask a Librarian' graphic. We decided to create the new graphic using the SVG format, as it is now able to be rendered across browsers. SVG's have many benefits that enhance user experience. They are scalable, responsive, light weight, and accessible. This presentation will provide an overview of Scalable Vector Graphics, several examples, and steps on creating, modifying and optimizing an SVG graphic.
