Program: School Library System

Audience: Sullivan County School Librarians

Dates: 5/19/2020

Meeting Times: Tuesday, May 19th, 8:30 - 3:30

Location: Ulster BOCES Jane Bullowa Conference Center, 175 R

The day-long workshop is titled "Creative Coding - Get More from Your Library Website" and aims to provide school librarians with hands-on training in managing and customizing their websites and online resources. We all know that libraries require a compelling virtual presence to provide key access to resources and collections, and that we utilize a variety of platforms like Google Sites, Wordpress, Weebly, Wix and Libguides to promote our services, but the main challenge is customizing that content to meet our specific needs. This includes branding, modifying the look and style of these resources and being able to adapt code (including widgets) to embed content. This workshop will provide librarians with practical experience doing just that. Through learning and applying basic HTML and CSS code, the participants in this workshop will be better able to customize online content and increase usability and access to resources. As part of this workshop, we will look at accessibility issues and cover guidelines for creating a more accessible website. During the afternoon session, participants will be given time to apply their new knowledge under the guidance of the workshop instructor. The goal is that by the end of the day, each librarian will not only have added to their skill set, but will have started modifying or creating web pages for their respective libraries. "Creative Coding" provides a unique librarian-centered approach to coding that school librarians can start applying immediately!
