Procedures for Content Submission

  1. Follow these guidelines for creating web content for the ALA undefined Website:
    • YOU have control over the page content.
    • There will be fewer mistakes if you send a corrected page in its entirety rather than instructions on what text needs to be corrected.
    • The ALA website has a preset template that we cannot alter. Your content will go in the area not used by navigation menus.
    • The ALA website has preset styles. Concentrate on content, not style.
    • Keep graphics to a minimum.
    • Keep tables to a minimum.
    • Frames will not be accepted.
    • If submitting an RTF or TXT file, bracket text that you want linked and the URL that you want it linked to. Example: {American Library Association - http://www.ala.org}
  2. Send your content or updates to your Information and Content Committee liaison (find your NMRT committee below if you are unsure who your web liaison is). Copy the Information and Content Committee chair(s) in on your request, in case your liaison is out of their office.
  3. Let them know your preferred deadline (Note: we cannot promise a quick turnaround. We'll do our best, but it's in your best interest to send us your content at least a week in advance )
