Library website voted “College Library Web Site of the Month” by ACRL!

I just received the following email from the chair of the Communications Committee of the College Libraries Section – Association of College and Research Libraries:

I am pleased to inform you that the Milligan College Library website has been selected as the “College Library Website of the Month” for March 2012 by the Communications Committee of ACRL’s College Libraries Section.

The College Libraries Section recognizes that a library’s website, in addition to enhancing access to a library’s resources and services, serves in general as a major means of communicating with current and future users. As a result the Communications Committee has decided to feature one college site a month that we feel showcases noteworthy contents, features, designs, etc.

Once selected, the sites are listed on the College Libraries Section’s site along with a brief summary outlining the reasons for their selection. Beyond simple recognition, it is hoped that by highlighting these Web pages we are providing the library community with a convenient listing of sites that can be used by others to gain insights and inspiration to enhance their own library’s online presence.

The Communications Committee would like to extend our congratulations to the all of those who have worked to build and maintain your library’s outstanding site. We also hope that you and members of your library and academic community will take a few moments to visit our “Site of the Month” page to read our review of your library’s site as well as those of past winners.

We are very proud of our website. We have worked hard to make it uncluttered yet attractive, easy to navigate, and resource-focused. It is a great honor to receive this recognition from our professional colleagues.
