Designed for people who have already created a basic Website for their library, but want to turn it into a high-end one, this easy-to-follow manual contains numerous library examples and practical exercises that help make Websites more appealing, efficient, and interactive. It teaches how to create tables, arrange content more effectively, get more feedback from patrons, and add imagemap graphics which will allow patrons to connect to information in other parts of the Website by clicking on pictures. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the tools needed to quickly create features on the Website. This package details how to improve Webpages by: learning HTML tags (from those that identify documents and affect text displays to ones that create lists, hypertext links and graphics displays); creating imagemap graphics with Map This! and adding them to HTML documents; creating tables; using frames to create more effective pages; using forms to get feedback from patrons (including sample interlibrary loan, reserve, library card and purchase request forms); understanding forms and CGI basics using PERL; creating a feedback form (including security issues); and creating database search forms (including a local genealogy database and search form). The CD-ROM includes a Map This! freeware programme, and PERL Interpreter (with versions for LINUX, UNIX, Windows and Mac), HTML documents for all sample forms, and PERL code for all sample forms. Appendices include a user-friendly glossary of "techie terms", a bibliography, a list of HTML equivalent characters, an HTML "cheat sheet", a list of hexadecimal colours, and a summary of advanced PERL.
