Library & Information Technology Assn.

Participants will learn firsthand how to create online maps; how to properly use maps in library webpages; how to embed GIS technology into library projects (and the benefits of it!); and how to enjoy GIS and mapping technologies in personal endeavors.
Being found in commercial search engines, like Google, and writing indexable content have largely been on the periphery of library web development practice. In this course/workshop, we will explore the mechanics and principles of acceptable best practices for SEO, identify components that contribute to successful harvesting of library web sites and microsites, and discuss the need to make library content findable in broader online settings. Come learn why SEO is not just "snake oil" and can be an integral part of library marketing and outreach initiatives
