In this lively panel discussion, Karen McBride (Barrington Area Library), Ann Stovall (Indian Prairie Public Library), Nina Kenney (Lake Villa District Library), and Michael Cianfrani (Winnetka Public Library) will share best practices from redesigning their own libraries’ websites, including how and where to start, how to justify and prove value to staff and the public, and how to build a sustainable workflow. Each panelist will highlight the differences in their respective libraries, budgets, and capabilities, and will explore successes and failures.
Light breakfast and networking begins at 9:00 am; the program begins at 10:00 am. Panelists will be given approximately 10 minutes to informally present each website. A moderator will ask general questions, followed by an interactive open audience Q and A.
