Free GLA Webinar 2/17: Building Library Websites with Weebly

The Georgia Library Association is pleased to announce the February 2011 special evening session of the newly dubbed Carterette Webinar Series (formerly the Wednesday Webinars). The series highlights trends, innovation, and best practices in Georgia Libraries. While we feature Georgia speakers, registration is open to anyone, anywhere, so please share this announcement as you see fit. Topics are chosen to be of interest to employees of all library types, and each session is approved for one Georgia Continuing Education (CE) contact hour. The sessions are recorded and available on our archives site for later viewing. (Please bear with us as we move content to a new site and system.)

Building Library Websites with Weebly
Presented by Hilly Frilot

Thursday, February 17, 2011, 8:00pm - 9:00pm EASTERN Standard Time
Awesome websites CAN be easy and free to create! Join this session to learn a little more about Weebly, a great company that makes website creation as easy as drag-and-drop. Spend your time focusing on your message and how you want to deliver it, not on HTML code, and create a professional-looking website in no time. The Collins Hill High School Media Center website was made with Weebly, and has become a go-to resource for our teachers and students.


Please contact a member of the Carterette Series planning team with questions or ideas:

Georgia Library Quarterly to launch peer-review option

Beginning in 2011, the open access publication Georgia Library Quarterly will be undergoing some exciting changes. In addition to going online, a new blind peer-review option will be available to all submitting authors. In order to launch this option, the GLQ editorial board is seeking both reviewers and articles to be queued for review.

For reviewers, the workload will be light; you will be called on to review no more than one or two articles per year, and only if the submitted articles fall into your area(s) of expertise. The turnaround time for reviews will be 30 days. If you are interested in acting as a peer-reviewer, please submit your name, a brief description of your publication history or a resume, and a list of your areas of expertise to Sarah Steiner at ssteiner [at] Please feel free to send along questions, as well.

Thank you for considering!
