English abstract

This paper identifies trends in the content of home pages for Web sites of LIS Schools. Out of the 94 LIS School Web sites on a list maintained by the Internet Training and Consulting Services (ITCS), only 62 sites were working and showed no errors. All 62 Web sites were downloaded in a one-month period (May 2002) using the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet program, and the data collected from each home page was tabulated. The most common elements were then incorporated into a model home page that visually shows the predominant content on this type of Web site.
