Are you in the process of creating or redesigning a website? Want to know what design patterns Yahoo uses and why Yahoo uses them?

Check out the Yahoo Design Pattern Library.

Right now the Yahoo Design Pattern Library has 9 design patterns:

Drag and Drop Modules
Module Tabs
Navigation Tabs
Object Pagination
Search Pagination
Rating an Object
Writing a Review

Each design pattern has a detailed summary of when to use the pattern and the solution the pattern solves. There are also links to how Yahoo uses each pattern and some related patterns.

You may also want to check out the Yahoo User Interface Library and the new Yahoo User Interface Blog.

Update: Read more about how Yahoo implemented the Pattern Library. More info on Erin Malone’s site.
