Your website stinks – and it's your fault!
Matthew Reidsma, Grand Valley State University

How can you ensure that your stakeholders are aware of your services and products – and what you can do for them? By using text based and video memes, the National University of Singapore Libraries developed a new style of marketing. IFTTT (If This Then That) is a free online service that enables users to easily connect over 40 different channels and share information. IFTTT can be used to manage information flows and spread marketing messages with limited time and resources. If your users are frustrated by your library website, it might be that is has not been designed with them in mind. Hear how libraries can build useful, usable websites that can adapt to user needs.
