Website Address: http://www.beirutartcenter.org/
I think that the website of the Beirut Art Center is good in it general outlook. There is a lot of useful information provided, and the look is somewhat minimalistic. There is a section about the current exhibition directly on the front page, as well as a calendar “Agenda” style. The website i divided into 8 sections, and these sections are regularly updated. The site provides useful information in regards to it activities and schedule of events.
The positive: The website is well formatted, easy to navigate, and has updated information. You can also subscribe to receive the latest information about various events. I like the look of the website, even though it could be enhanced a little more, especially with the information box about the various events.
The negative: The content of the website is not syndicated. If it was syndicated, the spread of its content could be much more efficient. Site editors can use the syndicated content for a million uses. I would think that this should not be difficult since the website is built in php and MySql. The calendar of events is also not syndicated. It would be useful to have a syndicated events calendar, because you can add that to your Google or Yahoo calendar, and stay up to date with regards to their events.
Conclusion: this is one of the better sites that I have seen, but it still has a long way to go to be truly “useful”.
