Abstract

The South Thames Library and Information Service (STLIS) began a project in January 2002 to consolidate e-journal access for National Health Service (NHS) users in the south east of England. This paper describes the problems faced by the project team: disparity of existing access, diverse IT infrastructures and lack of central purchasing. It goes on to present the adopted approach - an economic and innovative solution which has created an easy-to-use, centralised gateway achieving consistency of access to print and e-resources, integrated with existing cataloguing and web services.
