Database Pages on Libary Websites

As work is underway on our library website, I’d like suggest that we seriously consider how we design our databases page. Mita Williams, a librarian at the Leddy Library at the University of Windsor, recently published a thoughtful post where she considered various options for laying out the A-Z list of resources. One thing that I found interesting in her post was the idea of mimicking the way search engine results pages show the same basic info: title of resource, text snippet, and URL. I’d also like to second the idea of giving each database a unique page on the library website (with a URL that is stable and can be shared).
