Providing a Web site that satisfies the expectations of the National Library’s New Zealand and international users required a re‐evaluation in 2002 of the library’s Web site content, design and navigation. There is a demonstrated public demand for subject‐based and digital information on the Web site as well as for the traditional access to the library’s catalogues. The Web site has also evolved as a result of developments in Web site usability. The design also reflects the library’s description of its services on the new government portal. This has required the library to describe its services, Web pages, catalogues, and key corporate publications using the New Zealand Government Locator Standard metadata set (NZGLS) as well as meeting the library’s own Dublin Core metadata standard framework.
