The Alberta Library is a libary consortium that works to promote barrier-free access to information, ideas and culture. The Alberta Library website serves over 290 member libraries and the general public. The site was re-created in 2007/2008 over 4 months.

Information Architecture: The existing site was very complicated and contained a lot of information which was out of date or repeated.
Audience: The site had to address a variety of audiences (committee members, TAL staff, the government, the general public).
Design: The website had to co-ordinate with and reflect TAL's visual identity redesign.
The site is used extensively by TAL staff, committees and the general public. The feedback has been overwhelmingly postive.
