If you haven't already run across this issue, Running the Digital Branch: Guidelines for Operating the Library Website is the follow up to the Building the Digital Branch: Guidelines for Transforming Your Library Website publication from 2009. In this latest issue, the following topics are covered:

  *   Ways to engage library users in conversations about books, movies, and other materials
  *   A detailed listing of what data TSCPL tracks and the tools they use for the website, blogs, and social media platforms such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and FourSquare
  *   Their team's approach to efficiently maintaining 24 blogs and six social media accounts
  *   Tips for using rotating banner ads to draw attention to website content, a technique which brought in 3,000+ page views for a post about the new library catalog
  *   Reasons behind the decision to migrate to the WordPress content management system (CMS)
  *   How gathering customer feedback led to more effective location for their My Account link
