Abstract

Library associations have used Web based mediums from a long time to disseminate information to their membership. However, most of these sites were static, and were not updated frequently. This is mainly due to the lack of time & user friendly technologies. Present Web 2.0 technologies have enabled easy designing and maintenance of Web sites. This paper mainly introduce such technologies and enabled features employed in redesigning the University Librarians Association (ULA) of Sri Lanka web site. It also discuss some changes concurrently taken place in a few other library association web sites. It is evident that Web site renovation should be a well planned process, and that due to addition of new services and features, associations can climb up to higher levels of user interaction.
