Abstract

The British electronic libraries programme has funded four projects to develop thinking on so-called hybrid libraries and one of these is MALIBU (Modernising Academic Libraries in British Universities), based at King's College London. Working with the libraries of Oxford and Southampton Universities it will take a very rich set of humanities resources from archives and incunabula to digital products and networked resources and create a seamless single access point to all the available resources. It will also explore how strategies can be developed to make resources available locally as operational services rather than unreliably over the Internet. It does not set out to create its own new tools but rather to find ways of integrating tools already in existence or being developed.
