One of the main challenges faced by libraries is to present their services and holdings to patrons in a truly professional and user‐friendly way. The standard library software available does not usually adapt to new technology as quickly as library users and staff would like. However, such limitations need not be accepted. By thinking in terms of small‐scale, incremental development and by using general computer software, an ambitious library can create a technologically up‐to‐date information browsing instrument even though finances and resources are limited. This paper describes the strategic and technological steps involved in such a process.
