The University of Houston Libraries recently announced the winner of the Library Website Sketch Contest.
Andrea Bohorquez, a junior majoring in sociology, won the grand prize for her drawing of a homepage that demonstrates usability and Cougar pride.
UH students were invited to share their ideas on what the Libraries homepage should look like. A wide variety of creative sketches were received over the two-week contest period. UH Libraries staff chose Bohorquez, winner of a Kindle Fire HD, and four runners-up who received library care packages.
Features from the best of the sketches will be considered in the Libraries’ website redesign process.
“I was inspired to participate in the sketch contest because I wanted to make the library’s services and events easier to locate, and I also wanted to express my ideas,” said Bohorquez. “I use the library frequently to study in the quiet areas which allow for better concentration. I also print class documents and scan on the first floor of the library. I like going to the library because it gives me the peace and quiet I need to study better.”
