    Over the last few years the shift in emphasis from print to
    electronic collections has posed a new series of challenges
    for libraries. Issues regarding physical logistics are now being
    replaced by URL management and appropriate copy, licence
    agreements, linking problems and, first and foremost, the
    growing challenge of how to make users aware of the virtual
    cornucopia of e-books, journal articles, text and images. In
