    Abstract

    The CATRIONA II project was managed jointly by Strathclyde University (http://www.strath.ac.uk/) in Glasgow and Napier University (http://www.napier.ac.uk/) in Edinburgh, but all of the Scottish Universities supported the project, which also had the backing of SCURL (Scottish Confederation of University and Research Libraries - see http://bubl.ac.uk/org/scurl/ ). The project was funded by the UK Electronic Libraries Programme and investigated the creation and management of electronic teaching and research materials in Scottish universities, but from a UK-wide perspective, asking in particular whether universities should manage services offering institutional or extra-institutional access to locally-created electronic teaching and research resources, but looking also at a range of related issues such as policy, strategy, organisational infrastructure, service design, and the role of the University Library. It concluded that universities should manage services, that external funding should be provided to help encourage, direct, and co-ordinate development, but that if it is not, institutions should themselves investigate the value of setting up services without external help. The project began in May 1996 and ended in January 1999. The final report, detailed and summary information on project surveys, and various other resources such as draft Intellectual Property Rights Guidelines, service demonstrators, and articles on the project can be found on the project we-site at http://catriona2.lib.strath.ac.uk/catriona/
