Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln

 

Abstract

A website’s homepage is a gate to its content, and accuracy of structure is important. This is especially more important on academic library websites that are places for searching for general and specific information.

This is based on a survey-comparative method using researcher-made checklists. The population consists of ten leading global-Asian academic library websites confirmed by webometry site. Findings include three factors: search engine available on the first page (P = 0.000), available page for electronic resources separately (P = 0.003), image attraction (P = 0.002), and the bond between a library webpage and non-academic libraries (P = 0.001). There is a significant difference between ten top global-Asian academic library websites. To constituent differences there is no significant difference between two studied groups of websites. In addition, for constituent classification and referral to electronic resources, there is no significant difference between studied websites.
