|LibraryHQ, the free Web resource for librarians and information professionals,
has announced that it is now offering Web-development services for libraries.
With services ranging from basic to custom Web site design, LibraryHQ Web
services ensure that each library has the type of site that best serves
its users, according to the announcement.
"LibraryHQ has become a recognized, reliable source in the online library
world, so it's natural that we'd look at ways to help libraries use the
Web to provide better service to their users," said Cathy Lamberth, head
of the site services group. "Librarians know there's a great opportunity
here, but they don't always have the resources to create dynamic, compelling
Web sites. We do."
The Basic Web service consists of a limited number of pages created
by a LibraryHQ consultant using unique information about the client library.
Included are images, contact information, background and button options,
text link navigation, and more. All sites are cross-browser compatible
and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Enriched Web service offers all the Basic features, plus a choice
of additional content that may include reading lists, bestseller lists,
hot Web sites, and other automatically updated content.
The Custom Web service includes design consultation with a LibraryHQ
Web design professional, resulting in a customized site that may contain
additional automatically updated content, message forums, search engines,
calendars, and many other options.
LibraryHQ also offers site maintenance, Web-related training, document
conversion, image processing, and other features as part of its Site Services.
Detailed information about these services and other LibraryHQ products
is available on the LibraryHQ Web site at http://www.libraryhq.com/products.
LibraryHQ.com was developed by librarians for librarians and information
professionals as a free Web resource and e-search starting point. It contains
the Speaker Source, Site Source, News Source, Automation Source, Classified
Ads, and many specialized lists of Web resources on topics such as filtering,
e-books, library organizations, library science education, legal issues,
and library statistics.
