NCompass Live: Redesigning a Library Website

‘Redesigning a Library Website’ can be a tricky process. Learn how one library is doing it on next week’s NCompass Live webinar on Wednesday, November 15, at 10am CT.

Developing a website that meets branding guidelines, prioritizes student-focused user needs, and caters to library professional user quirks can be tricky and, at times, downright impossible. This session explores redesigning a library homepage, including planning, building, implementing, and assessing a new library website. A robust resource list is provided to help start the redesign process, along with guidance on developing a unique website schema and layout. Conflict between university branding guidelines and EDU platforms is discussed. Attendees with zero coding experience, those with little to low budget for web redesign, and those from small libraries are all encouraged to attend.

Presenter: Virginia Cononie, Associate Librarian, Coordinator of Research Services, University of South Carolina Upstate.
