The Saint-Pierre de Jette school library will contribute to the redesign of the DSI module in PMB. Stéphanie Fort, librarian in this structure, explains why she decided to finance our new development.
Can you introduce yourself quickly ?
I work since 20 years at the Saint Pierre de Jette school library. I chose to use PMB as a SIGB almost 17 years ago ! And I still don’t regret it.
Why did you decide to participate in the call for contribution of the redesign of the DSI module ?
I have been using the DSI for a long time, but only to send new novels, documentaries or press articles to teachers. The presented project as a « new module » seemed attractive to me and I was attracted by the different « levels » suggested by PMB Services to contribute. At first, I thought that this type of call was only intended for large structures, but then I saw that PMB Services had considered all budgets.
How did you discover this call for contributions ?
Thanks to the webinar "Managing animations in PMB: participatory development serving the user community" in December 2020. I also watched the webinar dealing only with the redesign of the module.
What do you think about the approach of a call for contributions ?
I really like this system which is emerging since few years in several sectors. This allows everyone to navigate according to their budgets. We can finance great projects that could probably never emerge without the crowfunding. It is really an approach that I appreciate.
What do you expect from this development for your structure ?
To have the possibilty to develop our newsletters. At least, to be able to serve my audience.
If you had to convince someone to participate at this develomment in one sentence, what would you say ?
« Together, we are stronger ! »
This new development will allow Stéphanie Fort to communicate better with her users thanks to a more ergonomic module. All structures can participate. The Saint-Pierre de Jette secondary school has already taken part into this project, what about you ?
Many thanks to Stéphanie Fort for her testimony.
