WEB DESIGN

Having a solid web presence is something valuable.  Even the smallest libraries have some sort of web presence. There is a lot to be said about web design and how a website should look.  I know the very basics.  I am still learning and will continue to learn to keep my presence online visible and clear.

The World Wide Web Consortium is the best place to look first when it comes to web design.  The W3C is an international community devoted to providing open standards to keep the web clean and clear.  They provide a markup validator service which checks web documents for their formality.  Fitting a website to certain standards can really increase accessibility.  Libraries are all about accessibility and therefore library websites should not be any different.

Below are a few websites/blogs that have great information about web design and CSS:
