Library Event and Conference Planning: Website & Marketing

Use this guide to help you create an event plan, manage your budget or fiscal processes, order food, reserve hotel rooms, etc.

Website Development

In order to initiate the development of a website, you will need to have approval of one of the Deans. Once you have approval, create a Library IT Grover and provide an example of the template you wish to use.  Conferences hosted by the Libraries generally have much of the same information, so it is always good to copy other people's work and then check to ensure the links are working. 

Examples of past conference websites:

Note: Library IT can be very busy and creation of the site may take some time.  Once you know you will be hosting, you should immediately initiate the request!
