Who would have imagined, half a dozen years ago, that the national libraries of Europe would be cooperating as closely as they are on access to electronic publications? Who could have guessed that remote villages in northern Greece would be making use of mainstream information services thanks to state‐of‐the‐art facilities installed in mobile library buses? And who would have believed that real‐time ISDN connections to sound archives in Britain, Denmark, and Italy would be providing users with top‐quality access to music and other interesting sound bites?
