What I like about the new British Library website

Take a look

  1. I like the clean white page with a single striking (and changing) graphic in the background that is clearly linked to what the library collects.
  2. I like that a federated search box is front and center.
  3. But that search function lets you know exactly what collections you are searching and provides easy access to advanced searching.
  4. I like the uncluttered news feature.
  5. I like that all the business links ("about us" "collections" "services" etc.) are right on the front page, but not the first thing you see
  6. Finally, those cute graphic boxes along the bottom for featured "stuff" are cool. I particularly like the support us box.

What do you think?
