**First slide note - Slideshare doesn't seem to allow transparent images; I promise the first slide WAS readable for the presentation."

Description from the LITA Forum website:

It isn't a new argument: "The library website is for patrons." "But the people who use it the most are staff! What about our needs?"

This session will start with a presentation, outlining my experience building trust within my library, getting buy-in from (most of) the library's staff, and ultimately developing a plan for the library's web presence--a plan in which website analytics and usability testing with patrons are given primary importance.

The remainder of the session will be a discussion, allowing attendees the chance to share their successes and challenges and to get ideas from one another.
