ACRL - CLS College Library Web Site of the Month
Let the wind sweep you down the plain to one of the three normal schools established in 1909 in the Sooner State, Oklahoma. Ada is where you will find East Central University known for its pioneering efforts to promote access to handicapped students. Adrianna Lancaster is the director of Linsheid Library, named after Adolph Linsheid, a former University president.
The Library's home page, framed by ECU's bright orange trademark color, presents clear and direct access to its resources. Linsheid Library's website design and contents definitely reflect the mission and vision of the University itself -- being Oklahoma's premier student-centered regional university. The online catalog is well-situated in a text box above an entrance photo of the Library's entrance. The three main sections: Resources, Library Services and About the Library, provide comprehensive coverage.
Noteworthy online features include: self-guided materials in PDF that provide research help; Library modules that contain Library terms and web overview; research guides for 24 disciplines that highlight in-house resources as well as Internet sites.
