More and more libraries are looking for a way to make dynamic, easy to edit websites. Many of these libraries turn to powerful content management systems and then find that they have taken on more than they can handle. WordPress has gotten a reputation as a blogging platform, but many are using it for their entire website – including libraries. This workshop will walk librarians through the basics of using WordPress as a content management system for their entire library website. Attendees will get hands on experience that they can take back to their libraries to help redesign their websites.
“Great WordPress workshop last week. I went in not knowing even how to spell “WordPress” and came out thinking “This is the best thing I have ever seen; we need it for our library website yesterday!” — Satisfied Student.
