Cal State Fullerton's Library Web Site Hailed as Friendly to Students and Researchers

Streaming video and more await Web surfers who visit Cal State Fullerton's Pollak Library site, which has won rave reviews from a member of the online community.

In naming the Pollak Library's Web site its November Site of the Month, declared: "The team at Pollak Library in Fullerton, Calif., doesn't sit around. Instead, they've been putting together a powerful site to aid university students and the Internet academic."

Published by StartSpot Mediaworks Inc. in the Northwestern University/Evanston Research Park, is a virtual library resource center created to bring the best library and reference sites together with insightful editorial in a user-friendly site.

Richard C. Pollard, chief university librarian for the Pollak Library, said of the honor: "The kudos associated with this award must be attributed to the many librarians and staff members who have and continue to contribute to our site. We designed it to be multifaceted and continually evolving - built and maintained with the expectation that it is a necessary and useful portal for students, faculty and others seeking information."

The Web site features a virtual tour with animation and MTV-like production values to acquaint visitors with the facilities and services available on each floor of the library. The presentation is one of only a handful of full-motion library tours available on university Web sites nationwide.
