Academic Library Websites: Balancing University Guidelines with User Needs
Lombard, Emmett; Hite, Lesley A.
Journal of Web Librarianship, v1 n2 p57-69 2007
This article considers two components identified as essential to effective academic library Websites--satisfaction of user needs and adherence to university Website guidelines--and how they sometimes contradict one another. A literature review is provided, followed by results of a survey the author created and distributed that measures a librarian's perception of his/her school's Web-administration scenario. The author concludes with suggestions for balancing university Web guidelines and user satisfaction. (Contains 4 tables and 23 notes.)
