An effective library website is critical to a user's research workflow and general understanding of the library's resources and sources. If the user finds the library website daunting then s/he may not a.) conduct an efficient and effective research, b.) have a full understanding of the value of the library, or c.) use it. This poster provides library staff especially those responsible for usability with recommended tips and tools for ensuring that students have a positive experience when using their library website. Common library website issues such as where to start, library jargon, navigation, content strategy, and accessibility will be addressed with the poster.
