When you're finished with your tests and are satisfied with the results, you can do either a "soft" or a "hard" launch.
In a soft launch, you would install all of your updated pages without any announcement or fanfare. Any visitors who do come by using mobile devices should enjoy a more satisfying browsing experience, a whole basketful of Easter eggs. This would make it possible for many users to put the site through its paces and give you a chance to resolve any problems that users report before announcing the new service to the world.
In a hard launch, you'll install all of the updated pages and publicize your new mobile friendly website. This could also happen a few weeks or months after a soft launch.
You may want to add additional functionality in the future, such as web applications that are tailored to mobile devices or to specific devices, such as the Blackberry, iPhone, or the android-based devices. Here's more:
Educause presentation about the NCSU library's new mobile friendly website, including an online catalog user interface that was tailored especially for mobile device users. This presentation lasts approximately 1 hour.
Mobile Design and Development, by Brian Fling. O'Reilly Media, Inc., available at Safari Tech Books Online.
Good luck with your library website redesign, and I hope that you and your users will appreciate this extra level of access. If you have any questions or need advice, feel free to contact me ("fhelsing" at "library").
