It’s that time again: Reviewing school library web sites.
Are school library web sites changing to meet the needs of their users? Over time, I have observed more interactive sites that are attractive. The process of change has been slow, yet steady.
Many of the cute clip art decorations have disappeared. Replacing it are actual photos of users in action within the local facilities of the school library.
Designated areas for research links, reference databases, school-related information, suggested reading, the online catalog, professional development or links for teachers, and miscellaneous are now regular features.
The virtual school library is coming alive. Students and parents have the opportunity to access school resources from outside the school walls to continue the learning experience.
What will be interesting is to watch for what is to come for school library web site content.
