Although it began as a blog tool, WordPress has grown into a complete content management system with thousands of interactive themes available. Since it uses the MYSQL database management system, the open-source software suits the needs of library websites by aggregating a library's complete database inventory. Rather than update several HTML pages within a site when new vendors are added or a URL is changed, information from vendors such as ExLibris can be maintained in a simple database and then delivered to a webpage. The presentation highlights the use of some simple WordPress plugins to manage many aggregators and deliver a modern-looking library website.
