Virtual YA Index
Part of my responsibilities as the Young Adult Librarian at the Ossining Public Library has me providing content and design suggestions for "The Place for Teens", the young adult section of the library's website. I've wondered about how The Place for Teens compares with other young adult websites, and I recently discovered a good resource to help me compare. The Virtual YA Index lists links to public libraries (and a few library systems) in the U.S., Canada and New Zealand that have young adult sections. Through browsing the Virtual YA Index, I was able to glean some great ideas for how to make the Place for Teens more interesting and exciting, and it was also encouraging to see so many web pages devoted to young adults.
