Library websites can be prone to a number of issues that frustrate their users. Many sites use outdated conventions, anecdotal “data” or fail to use standard practices, resulting in poor experiences for patrons, and a loss of credibility for the library as a community institution.
In this webinar, learn about common problems found on today’s library websites, backed by current research, from a web designer/developer who has been working with library websites for more than two decades.
Laura Solomon, MCIW, MLS, is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network. She has been doing web development and design for more than twenty years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She specializes in developing with Drupal. She is a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker. She’s written three books about social media and content marketing, specifically for libraries, and speaks nationally on both these and technology-related topics. As a former children’s librarian, she enjoys bringing the “fun of technology” to audiences and in giving libraries the tools they need to better serve the virtual customer.
