Abstract

This paper discusses results from research undertaken during 2005 which examined the Internet's ten most popular websites and the functions and features of these websites that can be applied to library web pages. Qualitative interviews were undertaken with library web developers to provide an understanding of some of the issues affecting the library web pages that are being designed and built today. The research results provide valuable information from popular and library websites that can be used to improve the design, functionality, use of technology, content, feedback and planning of our next generation of websites.
