25 Problems on Library Websites (And How to Fix Them): Webinar (11/17/16) 

Thought that rotating carousel looked cool? What about that vendor widget? There are all kinds of issues with various features commonly found on library websites.

In this webinar, we'll take a look at 25 different ones, and break down not only the inherent problems your patrons may face because of them, but you'll learn ways to fix those issues, and even rate how hard those fixes are.

If you're worried about how friendly your site is for patrons, this session will give you some solid data and ideas to take back to administrators.
