Open Access Honors Program Thesis

An article written by Blumbach in 2005 suggested the 28 criteria are "essential elements for any school library media web site." The criteria are named closely similarly to the categories in the current study. Overall, the pattern in Wisconsin is that libraries are not living up the criteria suggested in the field of research for quality website presence. Due to the evidence that a school library media program is strongly influenced by its Internet presence, the purpose of this research was to perform a content analysis of selected public elementary school library media center websites in the state of Wisconsin. This research investigated school library media program websites in the state of Wisconsin and additionally helped to determine how well the library media program websites in Wisconsin meet the current "state of the art" described by previous researchers for this type of website.
