Abstract

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
addition users expect this information in a one-box interface.
With a reduction in many libraries’ staffing, this session asks:
how do we cope?
