Dear Colleagues,

I am thrilled to share with you that the Florida Library Association has announced its 2015 Awards and FGCU is the winner of the Library Web Presence Award!

The following is from the FLA Press Release:

FGCU Library’s website incorporates multiple points of access to a variety of users through good design and integration of resources and services. The website utilizes the latest upgraded LibApps modules, including a customized database portal, an interactive FAQ that reaches users at the point of need, a discovery tool, and social media through Facebook and a blog. Usability studies are conducted and improvements incorporated based on the data and best practices. Statistics, usage, and traffic are analyzed regularly and adjustments made accordingly. Our web development librarian has a strong customer service approach, teaching background, and is highly collaborative with all library departments, giving the FGCU Library website the user-centric focus it needs to help our students succeed.

Congratulations to everyone who has contributes to our web presence and special kudos and thanks to Danielle Rosenthal, our fabulous Web Development Librarian.
