those stylish europeans!

A few years back I wrote about the nice looking website and cute icons found on the openbare bibliotheek delft (now callled the DOK?) website. Now seems to be a nice time to link back to that since the Dutch are traipsing around the USA visiting libraries.

Also I’ve been exchanging emails with a librarian in Bologna (easy anagram = on a blog) and recently saw her library’s site.

I have no idea if it is usable, but it is sure easy on the eyes, which is a good start. Any nominations for the best looking library website in the USA?

  1. NYPL – solid
    Columbus – colors not my cup of tea, but otherwise I like
    Johnson County – re-done and much improved
    Multnomah – doesn’t look like a library site (this is a plus)
    Cleveland PL – has a text/mobile version – something more libraries need to pay attention to
    Orange County (FL) – again, color scheme, not my cup of tea, but they have an interesting array of services that they are pushing out

    How about you start a Webbies for the library segment? We need another committee LAHITH but you could cull through sites (based on population?) and then open it up to voting.
