At this new job of mine, I have essentially three responsibilities: information literacy liaison for business, journalism and other program faculty; reference desk duties; and updating and maintaining the library website.
The first three weeks I was really busy with IL but that has totally gone dead (since I’m not yet doing outreach to faculty), so most of my focus has been on the website and my ref desk shifts. The current template, though newly created, uses tables for layout. Does that make you shudder? We’ve decided to go ahead and keep using it and my long term project will be to create something that’s better for accessibility. So, I have to teach myself CSS. I have a friend who’s pretty knowledgeable in the stuff, so he’s thrown me some links, and I found lots of useful info. The one I’m loving write now because it’s clear and gives great examples: http://www.brainjar.com. I’m fortunate in that at least I have the college’s style sheets to model after. So, anyone know of any website tips for librarians?
