In 1996, a content analysis of 50 school library Web sites from nine countries, provided an overview of the then current “state of the art”. In 1999 and 2002, the remaining sites were again subjected to content analysis. This article reports on trends and changes through the six‐year period. While school library Web sites have remained very diverse, there has been considerable development, though that development has been uneven both across the Web sites and through the time period. More than half the sites became more sophisticated in terms of the number of pages and the resources made available through them. A major change since 1996 has been the use of the school library Web site to provide access to electronic resources such as for‐fee online information services, the catalogues of other libraries, and the school library's own OPAC.
