Abstract

The following describes a number of technologies and exemplary service designs that foster better Internet finding tools in libraries and more cooperative and efficient effort in Internet resource collection building. Our library and partner institutions have been involved in this work for over a decade. The open source software and projects discussed represent appropriate technologies and sustainable strategies that will help Internet portals, digital libraries, virtual libraries and library catalogs‐with‐portal‐like‐capabilities (IPDVLCs) to scale better and to anticipate and meet the needs of scholarly and educational users.
