Abstract

Describes the development of the hybrid library at the University of Haifa Library. This is an attempt to integrate disparate library resources such as the OPAC, online and networked databases, and electronic journals into a united system. Instead of separate terminals and workstations, access to library resources is facilitated through one Web interface allowing horizontal as well as vertical navigation. Additionally, linking from the library catalogue was realized. This article focuses on the goals, technology, and implementation of this scheme. The pilot project was a success, although a number of problems were detected. As a result, all workstations are being converted to the new framework.
