Promoting Your Programs on the Web: More Than Just Calendar Entries (NCLA 2013)

1,942 views

Published on

Your major programs deserve more than a simple calendar entry. Why not showcase them with their own space on the web? Options include a simple program page on your website, a custom section for the program on your site, and a full, separate program website complete with its own URL. We’ll share Durham County Library’s experiences, successes, and lessons-learned with these different methods. While this won’t be an overly technical discussion, we will examine some platforms available for easily creating a program website. Most options won’t cost you a cent and don’t take that long to set up.
