Date of this Version



This study aims to ascertain how and to what extent the information regarding libraries is presented in the websites of the Arts and Science Colleges of Kerala, India. The contents of the library websites/webpages were analysed using a check-list containing 28 criteria, developed for this purpose. A sample of 32 colleges were selected for the study. The most popular features available in these websites were identified and the websites/webpages were ranked on the basis of certain scores assigned to every criterion. The major findings shows that majority of these colleges have a web presence and information regarding library opening hours, collection information and information regarding circulation are the popular content in the webpages. Another major observation is that most of these webpages do not provide sufficient links to provide access to the subscribed e-resources.
