We are excited to announce the launch of two more LH3 sites, LawHelpNC.org and IowaLegalAid.org. Congrats to Gray Wilson and David Sobie at Legal Aid of North Carolina and Dave Huston, Bryan Baker, Eve Ricaurte and Pat McClintock at Iowa Legal Aid!
If you take a look at these sites, you may notice some nice features. North Carolina has embedded a Google Calendar of clinics and workshops into a resource, which they’ve highlighted in a CKEditor on the homepage sidebar. LawHelpNC.org has also done a good job of highlighting the video content on their site by pulling it into a content widget on their site. They’ve also consistently noted all video resources by adding “(video)” after the title. This helps users easily denote on resource result pages which items are videos.
IowaLegalAid.org has also implemented some nice features, such as a rotating homepage photograph in the Welcome Box, which they did by embedding an animated .gif. They have also highlighted printed publications, such as Iowa Legal Aid’s Equal Justice Journal and their booklets on common legal problems, by offering downloadable versions featured in the content widgets on their homepage sidebar.
