New Free Carterette Series Webinars


WordPress for Library Websites (and more!)

Date & Time: Wednesday, January 18, 2012
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EASTERN STANDARD TIME

Description: Does your organization need a new web site? One that is more dynamic, easy to update and can easily incorporate social media and other ways to communicate with your library’s patrons/customers? WordPress (free, open source) may be the answer. WordPress is a powerful web Content Management System (CMS) that has grown far beyond its origins as a blogging tool.

WordPress can be used to power your library website and help you build a dynamic web presence for your library, school, personal web site, business or other project. Its ease of use and flexibility make it a perfect choice for libraries that are struggling to keep their websites up to date and/or looking for a more up-to-date look for their website. Its extensibility via plugins and other customizations make it a great choice for more complex sites as well.

This webinar will cover:

·                     Examples of sites built with WordPress
·                     Why WordPress is a great choice for schools & libraries
·                     Hosting options and requirements
·                     WordPress.com vs WordPress.org
·                     Making it look great: Themes
·                     Building blocks of WordPress: Posts & Pages
·                     and more!

You’ll leave the webinar with an understanding of how to get started building your own WordPress site and be able to evaluate whether WordPress is the right solution for your library’s needs.

Ebooks, Discovery, and the Library

Date & Time: Wednesday, January 18, 2012
3:15 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. EASTERN STANDARD TIME

Description: Publishers, authors, booksellers, and librarians have traditionally thought of discovery as something that happens in a physical place. A patron browses the shelf, a librarian offers some reader's advisory, a new author is picked up from an artfully created display. Online discovery lags behind, despite Amazon's best efforts. People still pick books up based on word of mouth. Libraries, with entire sections of staff devoted to helping people pick out books, are word of mouth engines, but struggle to prove our worth to the rest of the book ecosystem. Ebooks make that even more difficult when the library as place is taken out of the equation. This session will explore some possibilities for libraries as channels of discovery in an ebook-dominated market.

Presenter: Kate Sheehan is the Open Source Implementation Coordinator for Bibliomation, a consortium of public and school libraries in CT. She has been the Coordinator of Knowledge and Learning Services at Darien Library and the Coordinator of Library Automation at Danbury Public Library, which was the first library to implement LibraryThing for Libraries. Prior to joining Danbury Public Library, she was a technology and reference librarian at both Hamden Public Library and the Ferguson Library in Stamford, CT. A graduate of Smith College, Kate’s post-college experiences in the corporate workplace inspired her decision to get an MSLIS from Simmons. She finished library school in December of 2003 and has been happily ensconced in the public library sphere since then. When she’s not coordinating, she blogs at loosecannonlibrarian.net (http://loosecannonlibrarian.net/) and at ALA TechSource (http://www.alatechsource.org/blogger/17).
