A Librarian’s Guide to Using Images on the Web Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Thursday, December 17, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Using images on the web creates a host of challenges for librarians. You need to ensure that your images are formatted properly, optimized for social media, and do not slow down web browsers. You need to guarantee that you are following best practices for usability and not violating copyright law with the use of your images.

You may not even be aware of some of the issues that web images can create for your patrons. In this webinar, web design expert and librarian Laura Solomon gives you the tools you need to ensure your images look good and function efficiently. You’ll leave this webinar with the tools you need to help ensure your sites look great, load fast, and are user-friendly.

By participating in this event, you will:

  • Understand why image optimization is critical for a better user experience
  • Learn the most common image formats and when to use each
  • Learn about requirements for images by various social media networks
  • Learn about sources of free, open-license images on the web
