It’s hard to believe I’ve been running LISNews since 1999. Long time readers will probably remember I’ve started a bunch of other things over the years as well. LISHost, LISWire, LISEvents, LISFeeds, and probably a couple others I forgot about now. For years (I registered the domain almost 6 years ago!) I’ve been trying to get a library themed CMS off the ground, and it’s finally happened! Sean Fitzpatrick has put a ton of work in over at http://librarycms.org/ . Take a look at let me know what you think!
Introducing Library CMS: The easiest, most beautiful, and most feature-rich content management system built for libraries.
LISHost has launched a new library website creation tool, LibraryCMS. LibraryCMS is a cloud-based Content Management System delivering a suite of fully integrated, enterprise-class, customer-driven website development applications. This turnkey solution allows libraries to create an attractive and easy-to-use, hosted library website, fully supported by our team of librarians.
Clients can quickly create all the features they need with an easy web-based, no-code-needed interface. Every installation comes with a calendar, news feed, homepage feature slideshow, online resources directory, social media integration, responsive layouts for all devices, email, stats, and more, all on the library’s own URL.
LibraryCMS is the lowest solution for any library to quickly launch a modern website.
Small libraries with little no web presence that may not even have registered domain names will have access to LibraryCMS and have their own newly registered domain name included, all at a drastically reduced price.
