Abstract

This paper discusses the research project undertaken by State Library of Queensland into what a Digital Library could be. With this project, the State Library explored what a public library could be in 2020 in the virtual realm. Digital Library Project 5 (lightheartedly renamed ALICE) is an investigation into an eLending/ePublishing platform, NOT a library management system. We were not exploring how to organise ‘stuff'. The major issues discussed include the need to be ‘intrapreneural’, the details of the project itself and the risks with a startup approach.
