Abstract/Description: This report reviews and discusses Web site design strategies for organizations providing counseling and career services. The authors put forth a model of Web site development based on fulfilling the information needs of specific users. A distinction is drawn between need-based and resource-based Web sites and their advantages and disadvantages are reviewed. It is stated that Web sites designed around user needs and learning principles may be able to promote more efficient and effective user outcomes. The authors also provide a six step process for information use to provide a context for Web site development. Furthermore, the role of an organization’s social and political environment in Web site development is discussed and an integrated team approach to site design is encouraged. The report also provides guidelines for the development of site content, design, and navigation, and reviews site evaluation issues. A brief discussion of technical, ethical, budgeting, and staffing issues is included. The paper then concludes with a 7-step model for implementing Web sites within counseling and career service organizations.
