Join us at NEKLS for a half day of website rejuvenation! This day will be a hybrid of live on-site work and virtual presentations.

1:00 – 1:30
NEKLS Tech Staff will introduce best practices and will help you set website improvement goals.

1:30 – 3:00
Watch the ALA TechSource online workshop “10 Steps to a User-Friendly Library Website” with presenters Aaron Schmidt and Amanda Etches-Johnson. A clean, well-defined website can mean the difference between an informed library user and a confused one. With a focus on the needs and wants of the library user, Amanda Etches-Johnson and Aaron Schmidt will help you develop the skills to make your library website easier to use and more interesting. Topics include:

  • Determining the purpose of your website.
  • Identifying your users’ critical tasks.
  • Wrangling content.
  • Writing for the web.
  • How and when to conduct usability tests.

3:00 – 4:00
Optional time in the NEKLS lab, getting input on your website and making changes. (Bring a laptop if you wish.)

If you’d like to attend, register soon. This workshop is limited to 20 participants.
