Style Your Web Site with CSS

Once you have the content of your Web page written and your markup added, it’s time to add some style. Cascading Style Sheets is the language that gives you the power to make your pages look the way you want them to. CSS also allows you to give your site a consistent look across all of your pages in less code than you’d imagine. Ultimately, designing your Web site using CSS allows you to accomplish more work, in less time, and make your site easier to manage over the long-term. This full-day, hands-on workshop, will give you the basic skills to begin designing professional future-compatible looking Web sites.

Internet Access: What's Your Policy?

You offer computers to the public. You most likely offer Internet access on those computers. You may even offer WiFi Internet access for the patrons with their own laptops and other devices. So, what’s your policy on what they can do, when they can do it, and what they may do it with? Issues range from filtering, to floppies. Do you leave the WiFi on after hours or worry about someone using it in their car across the street? Take a moment to re-read your policies and let’s have a chat.

Date and Time: May 7, 1pm - 4pm CT

RSS: The Basics

The new technology of RSS, also known as feeds allows users to subscribe to content that they wish to receive in a regular and timely manner. Feeds also allows information providers to send this information in the format necessary for users to subscribe. This three hour hands-on workshop will introduce attendees to both providing and consuming content via RSS.

Date and Time:
May 8,  9am - 12 noon CT

RSS: Next Steps

Description: Once you’ve mastered subscribing to and reading feeds, what’s next? How about manipulating, mashing, sorting, and republishing the information you’ve found for your patrons? Imagine automatically posting up to date local or industry headlines on your library’s homepage. This is just one of the things you can do in just a few simple steps. This workshop covers many other RSS tools and services, including one that will create feeds from content without its own feed and another that will automatically turn your text-based content into an audio podcast.

Date and Time:
May 8,  1pm - 4pm CT
