What can you expect if you attend this training session?

  • View some of the best examples of LIS blogs and discover what makes them worth reading.
  • Create your own blog in just minutes using the free Blogger.com service.
  • Discover many of the options for customizing your blog to fit your needs.
  • Leave with ideas on just how blogging can be integrated into your library's Web site.
What should you bring with you to class?

In class you’ll be creating a blog of your own. You’re welcome to create a personal blog or a blog for your library. Either way, before class please take a few minutes to consider what you would like to blog about. In class you’ll be giving your blog a title and creating several posts on your topic of choice. A little advanced planning regarding these items will make the class run smoothly.

Attendees are expected to have familiarity with using the Web. (X)HTML experience is not necessary.
