Library websites as communication tools during COVID-19
Library websites serve as a front door to all of the services, collections and spaces that we offer our users. When we all closed our physical doors in March and as we've reopened fully or in more limited capacities since, our websites serve as the go to place for users to find out what services are still available online and in person.
During this member meetup we will hear from two speakers who will describe how they shifted their content approaches to make sure their websites had the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 service changes:
Heidi Burkhardt - Web Project Manager and Content Strategist at the University of Michigan Library Ann Arbor will talk about launching a new website during COVID
Megan Kudzia - Digital Scholarship Librarian at the MSU Libraries will talk about changes made to their Digital Scholarship Lab site and how it interacts with the Library website as a whole
