Project Scope

The Herzog August Library, located in the Lower Saxony, known also as Bibliotheca Augusta, is a library of international importance for its collection from the Middle Ages and early modern Europe. The library is overseen by the Lower Saxony Ministry for Science and Culture. The library was founded in 1572.

Mobiteam was hired as a development company to complete the new website, that will replace the old one, being extremely old and not user-friendly, coming from the very beginnings of the internet.

Challenges

This was a very challenging project from all standpoints. Technical, aesthetical, and in communication. The main challenge though was to have smooth and clear communication with the end-client, who was very far from the IT and how the web rather works.

It was paramount to transmit the right message to our client during the project because it could jeopardize the delivery date and perhaps the functionality as well.

Solutions

Together with our partner on this project, we set up a very well organized communication flow. There was only one communication channel, thus avoiding the abundance of information and changes required.

As for all the projects, we used Asana as a project management tool and Slack for instant chat, besides emails. This simple solution made the whole work process so efficient and possible to launch within the estimated deadline.

Final Result

The final result was gorgeous. After months of hard work, we have seen a great online resource with a beautiful layout, smart functionality and usability that inherited the old legacy and transmitted further in modern times.

We continue to work with our partner on this project up to this date, on many other projects, establishing a healthy and long-lasting cooperation.

Client Feedback

We successfully cooperated with Mobiteam on several complex digital projects for big cultural institutions. These projects rely on innovative products and secure technical solutions. Mobiteam replies on complex tasks with on-the-edge ideas. We worked for the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel & Bundesvereinigung Soziokultureller Zentren.
