Creating a Wow Worthy Library Website

Our library desperately needed to update its website. We previously had web pages created through a campus-wide content management system, but that was proving to be too difficult to update and coordinate between departments. Ultimately, we decided to branch out on our own and create a library specific website that was separate from the institution’s website. At first, this was an overwhelming idea since I had never built a website before and I would not have ongoing help from our IT and marketing departments. That’s when I found Stacks! Stacks is a hosted web platform designed by library professionals specifically for libraries; they are also in partnership with EBSCO.
This session will cover the reasoning behind the library’s need for change, communication on campus with other departments, and their decision-making process. I will tell how I ultimately led the redesign on my own, what kind of time and input from the team in the library it all took, and finally, how it turned out. Mara Egherman and Christopher Holly from EBSCO will co-present and share their insights on the project’s success and the features of the Stacks platform.
