About the Talk
A talk was given by Simon Ransome, Suffolk Libraries and Heritage at the Running A Public
Library Website workshop held at the University of Bath on 15-16th November 1999.
- Suffolk Case Study
- Suffolk council was connected to the Internet
relatively early, in 1995, and ICT development received a great deal of support from the
council and chief executive. The councils site has developed with very little house
style, which was thought to be more appropriate for very large sites. The logo and a
consistently designed navigation bar are used through the site but different departments
develop their own identity. The site is supported by three fully funded posts. A number of
areas of the site were shown including the recently launched Book of Remembrance
service from the Record Office which attempts to list details of those who were killed in
the Great War.
