1) Provide a clear and simple map of the resources that are available on your site.
2) Limit the amount of information you put on any one page. Break different topics into different pages
3) Limit the amount of text on a page. Lists or short paragraphs are often most effective.
4) Be sure your pages are visually attractive. You do not necessarily need many (or even any graphics); you DO need to lay out your material in a clean, clear, and eye-appealing fashion
4) Use links to take advantage of texts and images already available on the web.
5) Give your page a clear focus. Is it an overview of a subject, an exhibit on a particular topic, or a collection of materials related to a particular question or theme?
