The Somerset County Library System of New Jersey has launched a new website.
“We did a complete overhaul of the look and content,” said Carolann DeMatos, director of marketing and public relations (Somerset County Library System of New Jersey). “Our goals for a new website included: integration of modern user experience best practices, improved search engine optimization, ADA web compliance throughout the site, and to allow our resources, programs, and collections to be more seamlessly explored by patrons.
” As mobile usage increases in the United States, we needed to integrate responsive design and acknowledge our patrons need for better accessibility to their Library on their mobile devices,” she added. “Additionally, we wanted to offer a more modern and visually enticing web identity. Somerset County Library System of New Jersey’s virtual Library is open 24/7, and the web page should be welcoming and usable whether you are visiting at 3 p.m. to check out a book or to register for a program, or at 2 a.m. to cram in last-minute research for a school assignment.”
