Digital libraries were viewed as systems providing a community of users with coherent access to a large, organised repository of information and knowledge. One group made the provocative proposal that this organisation of information was characterised by the absence of prior detailed knowledge of the uses of. the information. The ability of the user to access, reorganise, and utilise this repository is enriched by the capabilities of digital technology. Digital libraries are from the foreseeable future need to span both print and digital materials and that the central issue was to provide a coherent view of a very large collection of information. In this sense, an emphasis on content solely in digital format is too limiting.
