Building the hybrid library: a review of UK activities
Abstract:Five major projects developed under eLib's Hybrid Library programme have resulted in a significant shift in thinking, imagination, and above all confidence within higher education libraries. I examine the origins of the programme and the achievements of each project and conclude that libraries want to, and can, deliver deep and seamless integrated access to their print and electronic collections - which can have the shorthand name 'hybrid library' - and they are looking to publishers and intermediaries to assist in this.
