Bricks, Clicks, and Pics



Here’s a little more … ahem … broad thinking about websites being actual destinations, presented in pictures…

brick

This is a brick. It represents the physical library building. It’s an actual destination – library customers actually go there to visit, to use the resources, to be entertained, and to find loads of information.

book jacket

This is also a brick. It represent’s the library’s physical collection. It is an actual resource used by library customers. Librarians spend much time and money arranging this brick so customers can find and use it.

david

This is also a brick (although I have been accused of being many other things, too :-). This represents a librarian – an actual person, helping customers. And also a library resource.

Mouse

This is also a brick. It represents computer resources in the library. It’s an actual resource used by library customers. Librarians should spend much time and money arranging this brick so customers can find and use it.

website

This is also a brick. This represents a library website. It’s an actual destination – library customers actually go there to visit, to use the resources, to be entertained, and to find loads of information. It is also an actual resource used by library customers. Librarians should spend much time and money arranging this brick so customers can find and use it.

I think you get my point – the library website, interestingly enough, is where everything comes together in a library – as actual destinations that customers visit, as a much-used resource, and as a place where librarians help customers find what they need.
