Technical Services on the Net: Where Are We Now? A Comparative Study of Sixty Web Sites of Academic Libraries
Wang, Jianrong; Gao, Vera
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v30 n3 p218-221 May 2004
This study examines sixty academic libraries' Web sites and finds that 80 percent of them do not have a technical services' homepage. Data reveal that institution's status might be a factor in whether a library has such a page. Further content analysis suggests there is an appropriate and useful public service role that technical services departments can play by means of such a Web presence.
