WordPress for Library Site Design (SEFLIN)

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 to see a live demo of setting up WordPress.
