Criteria For Adding Links to Library Website (Policy)
Website links added to the library website must enhance and support its mission to provide and promote materials and services that meet the individual interests and needs of the residents of Fauquier County.
The author or developing body of the website must have an established reputation such as governmental, educational, and cultural agencies. Commercial, personal, and illegal websites as well as listservs and chatrooms are not considered for inclusion.
Websites must be informational, educational, or related to reading, books, and have a neutral viewpoint.
Websites must be updated regularly so that information is current and accurate.
Websites must be easy to use with information logically arranged.
Websites must be primarily subject-oriented. Advertising does not overshadow content, nor is it the primary purpose of the site.
Websites with particular relevancy to Fauquier County, or Virginia may be considered for inclusion.
Any staff member or library user may suggest website links. The library website committee is responsible for selecting links from the library website. The website committee includes the Public Services Manager, the Collection Development Manager and the Public Information Manager. Periodic checking of selected links is assigned to library staff.
