  • 12. Home page design of New Zealand tertiary libraries This Masters thesis suggests that use of commercial search engines in favour of library websites is linked to poor library web design. 28 February 2013 | The online presence of tertiary libraries is becoming increasingly important, however, research (OCLC, 2010) suggests that library websites are being shunned in favour of commercial search engines. Some scholars (Reidsma, 2012; McCann et al., 2010) attribute this to poor website design. Websites are a valid communication concern and what content is displayed, as well as how it is displayed on library home pages has implications for usability, findability and user perception. Tertiary library websites need to be attractive, modern and user focused in nature. Content needs to be arranged in a way that supports smooth navigation so that users are encouraged to engage with the library. An examination of home page design in New Zealand tertiary libraries Jessica Elizabeth Howie | School of Information Management 28 February, 2013 http://researcharchive.vuw.ac.nz/bitstream/handle/10063/2673/thesis.pdf?sequence=2 http://apo.org.au/node/34652 Research for discussion : The impact of well designed OPACs www.calyx.net.au
