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


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!
