Web content management systems like Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla! are powerful tools that simplify staff interaction with complex web technologies and empower librarians to engage with patrons on a scale never before possible. In order to realize the potential of these systems to further the mission of libraries on the web, libraries need to devise strategies around what types of content they should be producing and the outcomes they are trying to achieve.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will:
- Understand what web content strategy is and its place in an overall web strategy
- Understand how web content strategy can evolve traditional library service leveraging the distribution power of the web
- Learn methods for leading a cross-departmental team through content strategy development
