From the Publisher"This workbook is meant for librarians who have no programming background but want to develop professional-looking websites. Rubenstein describes the process of creating a website at a hypothetical library and the design cycle, from content development to publishing, beginning with quick tools to get started and then gradually discussing HTML techniques that can be used without expensive software. Topics include designing text and images, lists, tables, forms, and page navigation. Familiarity with Microsoft Windows is assumed."

Rubenstein tackles everything from the basic HTML through where to find video and graphic clips to make the site more visually appealing. He does not speak in constant technology lingo, which would have left this review scratching her head. Rather he uses a term and then immediately defines it in a user-friendly way. He also creates a fictional library Web site at http://redroselibrary.com to demonstrate everything that is mentioned in the book. The reader is then able to refer to the site while reading each chapter….Rubenstein provides an easy-to-use table of contents and index to further help readers navigate this information-packed volume. . . . This manual is not only useful for librarians, but patrons also could apply all this information to building their own non-library Web site."
