Abstract:In this paper, we investigate the issues related to language barriers on library websites, focusing on the websites of the 50 state libraries and the library websites of the top 50 cities in the United States. The opportunities as well as challenges brought up by language barriers are also discussed with an emphasis on multilingual access to the contents and services provided on the library websites. Future research directions are outlined with some recommendations for conducting a content analysis on multilingual access to library websites in a larger scale.
