WordPress CE at SLA2011

This year at SLA I’ll be teaching librarians how to use WordPress (an open source content management system). If you’re in the Philadelphia area and/or attending SLA this year, consider joining me for “Designing Library Websites with WordPress.”

Date: Saturday, 11 June 2011
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Level: Introductory
Instructor: Nicole Engard

Description: Content management systems are making it easy for libraries to create their own websites with little or no web programming skills. Of the three popular open source content management systems, WordPress has become extremely popular in libraries. This workshop will walk librarians through the basics of using WordPress as a content management system. Attendees will learn how to use WordPress to design their complete website, from the pages to the events calendar to the optional blog. Each student will have their own WordPress install set up on the instructor’s servers before the workshop and will continue to have access to it for at least a month after the conference. Attendees will need to bring a laptop to use during the session.

Note: This workshop is appropriate for any SLA webmaster who will be participating in Operation Vitality and is unfamiliar with WordPress.

This CE is cosponsored by the IT Division of SLA.

Ticket Information:

  • SLA Member: $199.00
  • SLA Student Member: $99.00
  • Non-Member: $299.00
