Anyone new to this meeting?

Kudos go to...

  • Joy Bogar. She has been experimenting with the table at the top of the page and many other "little" things that add up to a lot.
  • Lois Fowles. She has been using spare time she did not have to put FHL links into several counties.
  • All of you who are attending--both for the first time, and those who have been to most meetings (Liz, thank you!)

News and Events

Review of last meeting

  • Feb 1 minutes
  • Finish discussion about top of county pages
  • Finalize the catalog links area so a task can be created

Idea share

  • Colored labels for sections
  • Provide context: example: a beginner selects "Birth" from the top table, then selects "Census" to see how censuses help with births.
    • Brainstorm: What do we need to say in the census area, to help that person understand?
  • Tip Bank:
    • What do you think of the idea?
    • Brainstorm tips and how they look
