Libraries and holdings in a modern context
  • It should be possible for the library to:
  • Provide one-stop access to its entire scope - Local holdings - Licensed material - Digital content
  • Target its information universe at its users
  • Maintain its business processes in doing so
  • Maintain its identity and uniqueness
  • Make sure its holdings are available elsewhere
