Abstract

The paper seeks to describe the development of an internet web site to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2004. The paper provides a descriptive overview of the development of the site, detailing the planning of the site, its contents and the subsequent reaction. That the public library is well-placed to engage in creation of information resources that challenge ignorance and racism. The paper suggests that further research needs to be done into library-created resources created for communities. It is of practical use for libraries planning the creation of subject-specific internet resources or community web sites. The paper discusses the role of the public library in creating unique information resources and as such develops the theme of the public library as content creator as well as content provider.
