Maintaining a library website is tough. In many ways, the website is the public face of the library—it’s often the first place that patrons and community members engage. But when you’re dealing with running programs, administration, staffing the reference desk, and dealing with circulation, it’s easy for maintaining the website to drop off your radar. If your website has fallen behind the times and needs a major overhaul, then this hands-on learning event is for you. Collaborating with 9 other peers and your instructor, you’ll participate in four live webinars and meet one-on-one with your instructor as you work to enhance your website, so you can provide your library users with the best experience possible.

Library website and leadership expert Laura Solomon will help you learn with and from your peers as you share your experience, concerns, and technical issues with one another.

In your one-on-one consultation with Laura, you’ll have a chance to get direct feedback and advice on your site. This unique combination of small-group support, peer-to-peer learning, and hands-on guidance from the instructor will help you gain the insight, technical knowledge, and confirmation you need to get your site back on track.

You will be asked to complete a confidential questionnaire prior to the first session to assist in informing the breadth and depth of the facilitator’s focus.

Topics covered will include:

  • Usability
  • HTML and CSS standards/techniques
  • Social media integration
  • Content management systems
  • Managing staff resources

Please save the date for four live sessions, all taking place from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Eastern:
Live Session 1: Monday, February 25, 2019
Live Session 2: Monday, March 4, 2019
Live Session 3: Monday, March 11, 2019
Live Session 4: Monday, March 18, 2019

After participating in this event, you will be able to

  • Understand a variety of ways to alter the look and appeal of your website
  • Enhance your users’ experience on your website
  • Rethink how you manage your resources, so time can be dedicated to regularly updating your website
  • Integrate social media and content management systems
