Leeder, Christopher
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v35 n6 p533-547 Nov 2009
This study assessed the content of 72 academic library Information Commons (IC) Web sites using content analysis, quantitative assessment and qualitative surveys of site administrators to analyze current implementation by the academic library community. Results show that IC Web sites vary widely in content, design and functionality, with few established standards. Recommendations for developing a consistent set of standards are presented.
