Two great examples of this on library sites are New York and Multnomah

Subject: [WEB4LIB] Can the same website look well on a smart phone and on a desktop?


We are looking at design ideas for our website. We are hoping to create a site that will look well on small screens such as smart phones and on large screens such as PC monitors.

Can this be done without using two different style sheets? Is it possible to achieve this with a single design? I know that Google looks very well on a smart phone and on a PC monitor, but are there examples of library sites that have achieved this?

I would appreciate any advice.
