IL2007: Web Design on a Dime

Sarah Houghton-Jan gave a nicely entertaining talk about different ways to engage your patrons that don't cost a lot. Her slides will be on her web site soon; my computer kept crashing for some odd reason (maybe it doesn't like being under 35% battery power?) during her session so most of my notes are gone (don't laugh; I had a pen but nothing to write on!), but she touched on quite a few tasks that make a lot of sense (talk with your users, not to them; give classes; provide what the users are looking for, where they're looking for it).

Tomorrow, hopefully the computer will behave better; at least today I was able to scout out where some of the power connections are!
