Below are some interesting web pages that caught my eye while I was checking out various library donation web sites during the summer of 2009. Here is a link to some of the best library donation pages I found (in my opinion).
Amherst has an interesting oral history project worth looking through. They have a Facebook presence on the library home page too.
Augustana College Blog
Augustana supports an “external” library blog with short stories written and compiled by various library staff. It is freely available to read online.
Bowdoin College http://library.bowdoin.edu/index.indexes.shtml
The databases are listed by subject instead of searching through a federated search box. It is connected to the general search box on the home page. I also like the Bowdoin Reads on the home page. This gets the students involved and includes social aspect into library web page (photo of a person). http://library.bowdoin.edu/index.shtml .
This page has a scrolling ticker line on the library home page for library news, plus constantly changing graphics with bits of info about the university. Very nice way to roll info through to students and faculty!
DePauw University http://www.depauw.edu/library/
I like the clean home page, and it is well organized throughout the entire site. I also like the about us web page.
– Rollins http://tars.rollins.edu/olin/
Basic info about giving. http://tars.rollins.edu/olin/about/index.html.
