NCompass Live: Pretty Sweet Tech - Building a Clean, User-Friendly Library Website - Online 


New special monthly episodes of NCompass Live! Join the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Amanda Sweet, as she guides us through the world of library-related Pretty Sweet Tech.

Websites are often the first thing people see when interacting with a business. With so many things vying for people’s attention, the library website should be a call to action for people to use library services.

This session will act as a guide to building a library website that makes a good impression on library customers. We will cover the following topics:

  • Clean website design
  • User-friendly design
  • Providing the right information
  • Navigation Menu Structure
  • Readability
  • Accessibility
  • Reasons to click
  • Keeping your website fresh
  • Nebraska Libraries on the Web
This session will be more focused on WordPress since that is easier to set up and maintain. Absolutely no coding is necessary!

NCompass Live is broadcast live on Wednesdays, from 10am - 11am Central Time. Convert to your time zone on the Official U.S. Time website or use the World Clock Time Zone Converter. In the Time Zone Converter, NCompass Live is broadcast from U.S.A - Nebraska - Lincoln.
