Abstract

Australians are avid seekers and consumers of information in a great variety of forms. The National Library is working with five public libraries to better understand the information resource needs of Australians. Information Australia is a twelve-month pilot providing a more integrated approach to information via a web portal for Australians. This paper outlines the development of the pilot portal, including policy and technical issues and future possibilities for a service available to all Australian libraries.
