BIBDEL: libraries without walls

The project was designed to explore, identify and improve the availability and accessibility to the remote user of the services provided by modern library services by demonstrating that library services can be delivered to users at a distance instead of users being required to visit libraries. It demonstrated how technology and expertise can be transferred between libraries in different states and adapted to the needs of each. The three demonstration systems have shown, in three different countries and three different sets of circumstances, the potential for technology-based means of access by remote users to a full range of library services. BIBDEL's key deliverable, the toolkit of techniques, provides a practical and cost-effective guide for distance learners throughout Europe.

The following reports are available:
- Access to campus library and information services by distant users (preliminary studies);

- Access to campus library and information services by distant users (the design of three demonstration experiments);

- Access to campus library and information services by distant users (evaluation of three demonstration experiments);

- Access to campus library and information services (home, mobile library, management, training, cost-benefit and cooperation issues).
