Web 2.0 Updates

Library Pageflakes start pages

Two examples of Libraries using Pageflakes as a “start page”. (Thanks to Phil Bradley for highlighting both of these in his blog).

The first is Dublin City Public Libraries and Archive. It is not so much a start page as several start pages. I counted seven tabs so it is almost a mini web site! As a regular visitor to Dublin I love the traffic and travel tab where they have Dublin web cams, traffic updated and local travel news. A superb example of how far you can push this technology.

The second is Llyfrgell Ceredigion Library in Aberystwyth, Wales. Again, another good example of concentrating on providing local information.
