Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to describe the experience of developing a library portal to provide integrated access to research information at the same time as an institutional or enterprise information portal was being implemented. Design/methodology/approach ‐ The paper presents a case study. Findings ‐ Valid grounds for implementing vertical, specialised library portals alongside horizontal institutional portals include reduced risk, faster implementation and reduced maintenance costs. Practical implications ‐ Organisations seeking to provide integrated access to distributed information resources must consider library portals. Originality/value ‐ This case study reveals that in practice there is little risk of overlap between institutional and library portals. Both types of product are complementary. However, some integration issues remain a challenge.
