Managing the Library's Subject Web Pages without HTML Coding
Monday, January 1, 2001
Most libraries spend a fair amount of time compiling subject-based resource pages in an attempt to direct users to what we consider "quality" resources. Often the same resource descriptions and links are maintained on other pages and/or in our catalogs as well. This work quickly becomes both repetitive and unmanageable and requires all librarians to be equally adapt at creating and writing Web pages. This presentation will demonstrate two completely different approaches to creating and maintaining Web subject bibliographies by generating dynamic Web pages on the fly and thus freeing librarians from HTML slavery.
