BUILDING WITH BOOKS AND BYTES: AN EXAMINATION OF "ONE COMMUNITY, ONE BOOK" WEBSITES

by Hays, Sarah M.

Abstract (Summary)
"One Community, One Book" programs, first implemented in Seattle in 1998, have proliferated in the United States. This study examines how libraries and other sponsoring organizations use dedicated websites to encourage community members to participate in these programs. Preliminary evaluation of the sites listed on the Library of Congress Center for the Book page leads to an in-depth analysis of both problematic and exemplary sites.
