B104: Web Development in Practice

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Robert D Laws, Technology and Instruction Librarian, Georgetown University Qatar
Kristl Chavez, Web Content Librarian, Phoenix Public Library

Web development technologies are constantly progressing. Libraries can take advantage of the progress to en- hance websites in both performance and look and feel. Laws discusses using technologies such as Bootstrap CSS Framework, AngularJS, and JSON to deliver a library experience that’s feature-filled and eye-pleasing to today’s web users and illustrates using websites for the Qatar campus library and the research project on Islamic Bioethics. The real upside is that libraries can control and display data in ways that allow greater control over their online presence. Chavez describes how the Phoenix PL went from a custom, Java-based and catalog-integrated website to a more out- of-the-box website and how the library rediscovered its web presence in the process.
