Ever get the feeling that nobody is reading your library’s website? Trust your gut on this one; unfortunately, this is the case for much of the content posted on library sites. You may also be asking: Why is my content failing? How can I attract attention without resorting to irritating writing conventions?

Learn how to make your content not only attractive, but also palatable to today’s online reader. In this interactive and informative webinar, we’ll explore and discuss some simple guidelines that will make all the difference in how people interact with your website.

Even if you don’t personally maintain your library’s website, this webinar will help you better understand what your organization can do to have a website that people will use and enjoy.
