Monday April 7: Web Design Track


In the Web Design Track, B102 and B103 have swapped time slots. So "Fast and Easy Tune-Ups" is before lunch now. "Library Web Presence: Engaging the Audience" is after lunch.


New schedule is:


Session B102 – Fast & Easy Site Tune-Ups

Session B103 – Library Web Presence: Engaging the Audience
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM


Ellysa Stern Cahoy, Information Literacy Librarian, Pennsylvania State University

Emily Rimland, Information Literacy Librarian, Pennsylvania State University

Binky Lush, Web Developer, Pennsylvania State University

Kristina DeVoe, English & Communications Librarian, Temple University

Derik Badman, Digital Services Librarian, Temple University

From widgets to interactive subject guides, libraries are exploring ways to improve library web services. Penn State staff show how library widgets (small, portable versions of library tools) can remove barriers and enable users to add widgets to Facebook, iGoogle, or any place they want them. DeVoe and Badman describe how Temple University tackled a subject guide makeover. Using a product called LibGuides, a subject guide management system, they incorporated dynamic content such as RSS feeds, widgets, audio, video, search forms, and user comments. Learn how LibGuides encourages librarians to experiment and provides library patrons with an engaging experience. Take away new ideas, strategies for development and implementation and lessons learned rolling out these new services.
