Group Ranks Library’s Web Site No. 8

The Brookings Institution this week rated 61 federal Web sites based on 18 criteria such as publications, databases, audiovisual material, disability access, personalization, and privacy and security policies.  This blog’s mother ship, LOC.gov, ranked No. 8.  The full PDF report is here.  (Congrats to our friends at USA.gov!)

We’re constantly working to enhance our Web presence, to present more content in more useful ways, and to improve the user experience.  And we’re doing it all with one thing in mind: you.

If you’re new to LOC.gov or myLOC.gov–or even if you’re not–take a moment to look around, then come back and let us know what you think.  What are we doing right?  Where do you think we have room for improvement?

    There’s little doubt in my mind that the LOC website has put the bigggest volume of useful informtion on the web in one place.

    I don’t know if there’s a way to measure that. We know the world’s largest library has 657 miles of shelves. Must have the largest online presence too.

    Well done!

    Congrats! I’ve been checking the website out for a few weeks now and I’m constantly impressed with the information that is presented.
