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.
Installing WordPress and creating a blog is simple, but what about creating your entire library site using WordPress? There is much more to WordPress than picking a pretty theme and adding a few posts. This workshop, geared toward librarians who have a basic understanding of WordPress, will walk librarians through customizing their library websites with this tool. Attendees will get hands on experience that they can take back to their libraries to help redesign their websites.
