Abstract

Recent developments in Portuguese libraries are described with special attention to the application of new information technologies. The obvious modernisation largely described in the LIB‐2 update study has been mainly due to the automation of the National Library and the creation of the Online Union Catalogue. Main aspects and stages of this process which revolutionised Portuguese libraries are therefore emphasised.
