Bowdoin: includes what students are reading & unique way of handling databases.

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 .
