SinC Launches Updated Website

Sisters in Crime continues the celebration of its 25th year anniversary with an update to its website, www.sistersincrime.org.

The site features a Home page redesign that offers a more welcoming landing page with a number of new additions.

If the page seems a bit wider, you're not seeing things. We've expanded to the right and the left, in the areas formerly used as wide side margins.

We've moved the World Cat search engine for author, title or subject searches to the top of the SinC home page.

And we've added a new marketing "banner" -- or box -- focusing on the latest SinC programs of emphasis, such as:

  • The American Library Association’s Library Champions program in support of America’s libraries.
  • The Sisters in Crime We Love Libraries! book-fund give-away.
  • The latest SinC professional development tools including Shameless Promotion for Brazen Hussies, an updated edition of the 154-page book currently available to members only.
  • Member announcements, such as meeting notices and dues reminders.
Currently, the marketing banner focuses only on the We Love Libraries! lottery. You’ll see the box's revolving dissolves in action as we load more content to the site this week.

In addition, the SinC site now features a streamlined and upgraded Recent News section. You’ll also find easier-to-access links to SinC on Facebook, Twitter and the Sisters in Crime blog. In addition, a “Latest from the Blog” box provides links to the four most recent blog entries for a quick click-through.

And, finally, the Home page offers a Quick Links box for easy access to:

Include a brief caption and the name of the photographer for a photo credit.

    SinC into a great mystery!
