American Association of Law Libraries Webinars on Web Design

The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) is offering two webinars on web design:
  • User-Friendly Library Websites: Site Navigation & Design (March 19, 2015, 11AM - noon Central Time): "In so many ways, the library’s website IS the library, and it deserves to be designed with care. The job of a website whether internal or external, is to help people accomplish tasks, without being overwhelmed or distracted by a glut of information.  This is the first of two webinar sessions covering user-friendly websites. In this session, attendees will walk through multiple law library websites with an eye for web design principles and best practices. Attendees will be challenged to think critically about site navigation and begin to design with fresh eyes."
  • User-Friendly Library Websites: Writing Content for the Web (April 30, 2015, 11AM - noon Central Time): "Libraries are treasure chests overflowing with useful and valuable information.  The job of a website whether internal or external, is to help people accomplish tasks, without being overwhelmed or distracted by a glut of information.  This is the second of two webinar sessions covering user-friendly websites. In this session, attendees will learn about writing content for the web, how human behavior affects usability, and how to write content that aligns with the website’s purpose."
The speaker is Aaron Schmidt, principal at Influx Library User Experience Consulting. The cost is free to AALL members and $60 (US) per session for non-AALL members.
