While libraries in the Northern Territory have a long history of cooperative sharing of information resources, the introduction of a new library and information management platform - in tandem with initiatives by the Commonwealth and Territory governments to rollout communications infrastructure throughout the Territory - has provided new avenues for the consolidation of services and provision of information to all Territorians.
This paper describes the background, progress to date and future plans for LINNet, and considers the challenges of implementing a system that balances the needs of a consortium of 48 public, community, school, state and government agency libraries.
