About this Guide

One of the best ways to ensure that our website is user-friendly is to follow industry best practices, keep the content focused on key user tasks, and keep our content up-to-date at all times.

This guide was written specifically for “library website” content (that lives on the WordPress platform) but may apply to other types of library content as well.

This guide is under construction and will continue to change.
