Centenary's Magale Library Earns "Website of the Month" Award

SHREVEPORT, LA-— The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has honored Centenary College's Magale Library as "Website of the Month" for February/March 2005. Chosen as an outstanding example of a library Website, Magale Library has been selected among a wide range of small college and university Websites across the country.

The ACRL chooses library Websites from a pool consisting of those schools having Carnegie classifications at the baccalaureate or master's levels with an enrollment of less than 5,000 students. Websites are assesed based on five considerations:

1. Ease of access- timely connection with a relatively quick load of graphics
2. Content- useful and relevant, containing breadth and depth and characterized by accuracy
3. Currency- an indication of the last update of the site
4. Design- an eye-catching and appealing overall look, effective use of graphics related to a page's theme and consistent layout
5. Navigation- features such as a link back to the home page, site search capability and site layout.
