Small libraries frequently face quite a challenge when it comes to getting their library represented on the Web. Lack of technical skills (and the time to develop them!), lack of funds, and lack of certainty of how to begin are common barriers for many librarians trying to create a web presence for their libraries and their community. In 2007, the Utah State Library teamed up with BCR in an attempt to find a sustainable solution to this problem for the state’s many small libraries. Join us to discuss our approach to this common dilemma, to take a peek at some of the websites that came out of the project, and to hear from some of the librarians involved.
Come and hear Colleen Eggett of the Utah State Library, Shelly Drumm of BCR, and Public Library directors in Utah discuss this project. Location: Hilton Hotel in Salt Lake City UT, Lower Level Salon 1. See more about the conference: http://www.ula.org/conference/2008conf/index.php
