New Wisconsin Library Heritage Center Website

As part of a major reworking of the websites for the Wisconsin Library Association, the website for the Wisconsin Library Heritage Center has been reorganized and transferred to a new blog/website software. It is one of only a handful of websites on the Internet that is devoted to library history. I'm currently chair of the Steering Committee of the Wisconsin Library Heritage Center and maintain its website. The website contains a blog with irregular posts and more stable content web pages. In the new site, the more permanent content web pages are listed as topics under the menu headings at the top of the home page. The "History" menu includes much of the content. Blog posts are organized under broad categories on the right side of the website and are also indexed with tags. Inductees to the Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame are highlighted on the website with individual blog posts under the "Hall of Fame" category. The new platform used by the Wisconsin Library Association is based on Joomla and the blog software is EasyBlog by Stackideas. The main WLA website is located HERE and the website for the Campaign for Wisconsin Libraries is located HERE.
