LibraryCMS & Prefab

Websites are more than code

I was sure I’d written about Prefab when it was announced a few months ago, but like so many things, I guess I just wrote it in my head!

In any case, if you’re in the market for a new library website be sure to check out these great options: Prefab and LibraryCMS.  Both will provide you with a well-designed, modern website for a very reasonable one-time development price. And both services will securely host your site on an ongoing basis for an annual fee. Both offer a 30-day free trial, so take them for a test run.

The differences? To put it simply, Prefab is WordPress and LibraryCMS is Drupal. Both are wonderful open source content management systems that will run your website very nicely. (I’ll leave the more technical details to others.)

And best of all, both projects are coming from well respected and skilled library folk. The folks at LISHost are behind LibraryCMS and Influx developed Prefab.

Development and hosting – boom – done – breathe a sigh of relief that you won’t have to form that library website redesign committee. Put all that time to good use by putting great content on your brand new website!

(p.s. no money has changed hands! Though I know & respect the folks behind both of these projects, I don’t get referral fees!)
