Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This study provides background information on the evolving library systems market in Europe, with a view to encouraging indigenous library systems' suppliers to participate more actively in collaborative research and development projects. The study included two surveys, firstly of libraries and secondly of system suppliers. Thirty libraries were interviewed, drawn from a cross-section of forward-thinking and relatively advanced libraries in EU member states. Twenty systems' suppliers were interviewed, representing the major suppliers in use throughout the EU; they included five suppliers not based in the EU (they were mainly based in the USA).
