If you are thinking about updating your website, you should read Meredith Farkas’ column in the October 2008 issue of American Libraries (v. 39, no. 9, p. 45). In “Our New Website Is a Blog, the head of instructional initiatives at Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont and author of the Information Wants to be Be Free blog describes how she uses Wordpress to create professional-looking blog. She points out that your site does not even have to look like a blog. See the site from Troy (New York) Public Library for an example.

Note: You no longer have to be a member of the American Library Association to read American Libraries. Most of each issue (and back issues from 2003) is now available online.
