Building Dynamic Web Pages: An Overview *** CANCELLED ***
Jim Kraft, Cascade Small Business Development Center
In static Web pages, the content is tied into the page along with the
HTML coding. To change that content, the whole page must be changed.
Dynamic Web pages, on the other hand, draw their content from a
database, such as Microsoft Access. The information is pulled from this
database and displayed on the Web using template pages. Each time a page
is called up it may be different, depending on the information requested.
To change content, only the database needs to be changed.
This session will examine database design, query design, web page
templates, software and techniques, in particular Allaire's Cold Fusion
and Microsoft's Active Server Pages, with examples of how these are
used in community and economic development. The session will demonstrate
how to put together a simple dynamic web page using off-the-shelf
software, and give you an understanding of just how easy it is to create
powerful dynamic web pages.
Jim Kraft has been active in Internet applications since 1993. He was
one of the first to test e-commerce in eastern Oregon and has spent the
last two years developing a virtual entrepreneurship center using
dynamic web technology. He is currently the Director of the Cascade
Small Business Development Center in Redding, CA.

we will examine some useful websites. The emphasis will be on free
resources; however, in order to have perspective for choosing the most
appropriate resource for a given circumstance, we will also discuss some
distinctions between free and fee-based sites. Our analysis will include
commentary on options for depth and breadth of content, and delivery

librarianship to the world of web publishing, using a novel approach
to creatively embed a metadata index in Web pages to improve
discovery and minimize effort for citizens. The Institute of Museum

Effective delivery of library instruction to students in locations
remote from the campus must address several variables: learning

design and course related library instruction as part of a
live-broadcast cable television course. It will include tips for
effective videotaped instruction, and discuss successful
collaboration with university media services and classroom faculty.
Information presented in this session is based on a recently concluded
pilot project to implement new library services for distance learners.
