Level Up Web: Modern Web Development and Management Practices for Libraries [$] Preconference/Institute Pennsylvania Convention Center
122 B
Description :

Web development is finally coming into its own in libraries! For decades, we've been relying on third-party vendors to provide us with our web services, but modern CMSs have made it possible for libraries to develop robust sites at reasonable costs. And while more and more libraries are employing full-time developers with a computer science background, there are still many struggling to develop and maintain a minimal web presence outside of the OPAC. Libraries can no longer afford this model of web maintenance, but often, the hardest part of moving forward is not knowing what you don't know! If you've ever felt that way, or don't know HOW to level up your library web site, this session is for you! Topics will include: how to launch and execute a user-centric discovery and design process; content strategy; web governance and staffing; information architecture; managing a web environment/CMS; iterative development; and version control. Attendees will leave with tailored plans, covering both short-term wins and long-term strategies, to "level up" their own web presences when they return to their libraries. This session is intended for librarians and staff of all technical ability levels, from the administrator managing staff who perform web work to the reference librarian contributing web site content to the sysadmin who keeps the servers running. It provides a big picture of the web development process for all who are involved in the process.
