CHICAGO - American Libraries, the flagship publication of the American Library Association, proudly announces the launch of its responsive design website at AmericanLibraries.org.

Visitors will be able to easily view this new site on their smartphone, tablet, or desktop, as it adjusts to fit each type of screen.

“Now you can check on the latest library news on your break at work, while waiting in line at the grocery, or during a late-night read in bed,” says Editor and Publisher Laurie D. Borman. “It’s easy, convenient, and shareable.”

The site offers several new features, including news feed updates throughout each day to Latest Library Links; more online content; quick links for every article to tweet, post to Facebook, email, and print; and a comment option that allows readers to use their Facebook account.

American Libraries represents a tradition of more than 100 years of keeping library and information science workers in touch with the top news and leaders of the profession. Along with its app for downloading the print magazine (ITunes and GooglePlay). American Libraries is making it easier than ever to stay connected with the latest library news.

The site, with a WordPress content management system, was developed by American Libraries staff in partnership with Chicago-based Mightybytes.
