Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln

 

Abstract

Library websites are instrumental in the promotion and disseminating of information to all users. Academic and research activities are web-based services that play an important role. The present study was carried out to examine the extended library services over the internet by the college libraries in Goa (India) to their user community during the covid-19 Pandemic. The web pages of all the college libraries were analysed to see if the contents of the library meets the standards. Forty college libraries were chosen for the study but only Twenty nine college library websites were found to have their existence felt on the college web page and the Twenty nine college library websites were accessed and examined during this study. The websites were accessed from 27th July 2020 to 26th November 2020. In the study, it was found that the contents were not well-organized and well-structured to meet the user needs during this pandemic period. The study suggests there is a need to develop a unique type of library website which will develop well-organized content that will provide better quality services to satisfy the information needs of the academic user. It was also found out that eleven college libraries do not have their existence on the college website or on the internet. The findings in the study will further help the researchers to study the design concepts and various sections to be included in the library website which will extend better services for the user in future over the internet.
