Top 10 Academic Library Websites 2013 by Emily Singley

Here are my favorite library websites for 2013. I expected this year’s sites to be:

  • Googleable – I wanted to be able to access library resources and services from anywhere.
  • Searchable – I wanted to be able to search for anything in a single search box. I did not want to have to navigate lots of menus to find “how to renew a book” or “library hours” or “ENG 101” or “dostoyevsky.”
  • Helpful – I wanted research help where and when I needed it: I didn’t want to have to slog through lists of “tutorials” or “FAQs.” In addition, I wanted troubleshooting help for technical and access problems.
