Greetings Nebraska librarians:
We are pleased to announce the arrival of the new Nebraska Library Commission web site, rolled out over the weekend – just in time for summer! If you haven’t already visited it, we’d like to invite you to do so today!
Here are a few of the many new and improved features you can expect to find:
· Our services are now arranged by topic. Via the flyout menus on the left side, we hope you will be able to locate the things you need–directly from the front page. Please let us know if you’re having trouble finding an old favorite.
· The search engine has been greatly improved; we hope it will help you to quickly find what you need.
· A “sticky note” reminder listing important events and dates has been added to the front page.
· The Library Calendar and the Training Calendar have been merged into the Library Training and Events Calendar. A link to this new Calendar can be found at the top of every page.
· The front page includes two new features along the right side of the screen: Library News and Library Buzz. Both of these can be subscribed to with RSS feeds for your convenience.
· Library News links to current newspaper articles and television/radio stories about Nebraska libraries, updated daily.
· Library Buzz highlights what Nebraska libraries are promoting through their Facebook, Twitter and blog feeds, updated throughout the day.
In addition to the new features we’d also like to introduce a shorter and hopefully easier to remember URL: http://nlc.nebraska.gov Don’t worry, our old URL still works.
Please take a few moments to explore the new site. When you are done we’d appreciate if you would take a moment to tell us what you think of the new site: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RZ6GXMN
