TITLE :HYDERABAD UNIVERSITY LIBRARY WEBSITE AND TOKYO UNIVERSITY LIBRARY WEBSITE: A COMPARATIVE STUDY

ABSTRACT: At present, all academic libraries are using web environment to provide high quality information for their users mostly in digital format, but their most important role lies in numerous and enriched library services. The development of library websites started in the 1990s. A library website provides a library with a website to offer its services and to tell its story to its community. Today, very few libraries are without a presence on the web. As the numbers of library websites are growing, it is necessary to evaluate them. This study attempts to cover the present status of one national university library and one international library and also their website i.e. Hyderabad university, India and Tokyo university, Japan. These two websites have been chosen through the process of random sampling. The authors have analyzed the content (i.e. aesthetic value, accuracy, navigation, currency, accessibility and user friendliness) of those two academic library websites.

KEYWORDS: Library website, Hyderabad university library, Tokyo university library, Indira Gandhi memorial library, General library (Hongo campus), Komaba library, Kashiwa library.
