Librarian Brian McCann, author of the forthcoming Music Theory is set to speak tomorrow at the 2018 Lib Tech Conference in St. Paul Minnesota.
According to the LibTech website, "the conference provides an opportunity for library professionals to come together to discuss the changing technologies that are affecting how users interact with libraries and to see how libraries are using technology to create new and better ways to manage their resources."
They further explain, "It provides a venue where participants can learn skills or knowledge that they can take back and adapt for use within their own library through a mix of sessions including keynote presentations, traditional lecture-style concurrent sessions, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops. Sessions are offered on a wide range of topics and at varying skill levels. Anyone interested in the changing technologies that are affecting libraries should plan to attend."
Library staff and technologists from as many as 150 institutions are expected this year’s conference. Brian's session is entitled "Polish Your Web Portal."
Brian writes, "Is your web presence… meh? Created more than 5 years ago? Can’t afford a designer? Time to do it yourself! Come learn the basics of user experience design to streamline your website for a great new look and functionality. See how you can use your new site to drum up more business and promotion for your library."
Brian McCann is a corporate librarian at an engineering firm with more than 10,000 employees around the world and 4 library staff. He more than tripled web traffic with a successful rebuild of his library’s site. He will share his top 20 user experience tips as well as what he learned about promoting the library through this behind-the-scenes informational service.
