Derek,

I noticed that VolState.edu does not have a search box anywhere on its home
page. You should add one (I suggest using a Yahoo SiteSearch API) and start
logging searches. Statistics are very handy in political battles, and search
logs are among the most valuable stats you can get your hands on.

Some advice for your one-man redesign...

Get your hands on a copy of Web Redesign 2.0: Workflow that Works (Emily
Cotler and Kelly Goto). That book will help guide you through an
effective/efficient re-design process.

Additionally, check out Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Lou
Rosenfeld and Peter Morville). Rosenfeld has another book coming out soon
about searches that looks interesting.

Best of luck to you

I second the recommendation for this book. It is by far the best web
process book I've read and has informed a lot of the work I've done on
process at my office.

I would also recommend reading the article "Good Designers Redesign,
Great Designers Realign" on A List Apart (an amazing resource if you
haven't seen it) http://www.alistapart.com/articles/redesignrealign.

Good Luck!

Matt.
