The increased use of technology in libraries has provided tremendous opportunities for accessing and distributing information. As information and library resources become increasingly available through the Internet, so does the need to develop user-friendly interfaces to access these resources. A well conceived and designed library homepage can serve as one such interface.

The content of the presentation will illustrate the usefulness of homepages, examine the process of homepage development and design, and demonstrate the ease of HTML programming. Topics discussed will include the formation of the homepage committee, the creation of guidelines, and writing basic HTML scripts.
