There has been some recent discussion that online, as we know it, is now old‐fashioned and out‐dated—being superseded by CD‐ROM and other technologies. The paper examines the various arguments and looks at where online is going by briefly reviewing some of the developments and trends happening in Europe and elsewhere. It does not purport to be a detailed technical report, but merely provides an overview.
