Dear librarian, I am an Egyptian student, I am doing my master in Library and Information science, My theses is about ( EGYPTIAN PUBLIC LIBRARIES' WEB SITES ON INTERNET). In my study I will analyze both your library's site and the Egyptian public libraries' sites and I'll compare between them. The result of this comparison will be developing a site with high technical and search capabilities in addition to user friendliness and suitable design. So, would you kindly provide me with the following information: 1. The date your site was published ? 2. who is in charge of the site management ? 3. what is the time interval of the site update nance ? In addition, any other information or resources that can help me in my study. And would you please help me to know the first library website and the first public library web site, in some reference say ( your site is the first and in others say “ Oton Zupancic Public Library” had the first website began in 1987” really I am confused and I want u help me to know the truth . Thank you for your help
Dear Egyptian student,
The Helsinki City Library website was published in 1994. You can find some of the earlier versions from http://www.archive.org , search for http://www.lib.hel.fi . Data Administration Manager Jouni Juntumaa is in charge of the site management. The site is updated continuously. As far as we know, the Cable Book Library of Helsinki City Library published the first library website in the world. It was published in 1994.
