Libraries do not have a reputation for being the most exciting places on earth. Usually depicted as quiet, sleepy halls filled with dusty books they hardly fit the image of a leading light when it comes to technology. And yet behind the facades of the British Library a team of people are hard at work supporting one of the most advanced library information networks in the world, while at the same time coping with the prospect of a site reorganisation large enough to daunt even the most experienced data processing manager.
