• Sierra maintenance updates Our vendor is applying fairly frequent "maintenance updates" to our system, the most recent one being overnigh Wednesday to Thursday (April 19-20). If you notice a message about an update at the bottom of your Sierra session when you open it, please try to open Sierra on one computer at a time at your library. These udpates should not take long to complete. -Lori 04/20/2017 - 12:16pm
  • Serials and "Verifier Error" There is a problem with editing and deleting some serials (magazine) records in Sierra: users get a "Verifier Error - Field group does not have pattern field(s)" message. This problem is expected to be fixed next week. I'll post an updade when the fix is in place. -Lori 04/19/2017 - 3:01pm

General Website Tips

  • Your website is not an effective marketing tool. Use something else to market your services.

  • The most popular things people come to your website to do are:
    1. Search the online catalog
    2. Find out when you're open
    3. See what events are coming up
    4. Contact you
  • Be brief. Be clear.
  • Use images sparingly and with a purpose.
  • You can't emphasize everything. You'll need to make choices.
  • Slideshows look good, but the first slide is the only one that 90% of people see.
