(1997)

Abstract
In the first part, a theoretical discussion points out two main reorientations in the goals of recent library automation. It is stated that technical innovations created possibilities and needs for new end-user services. A first reorientation, enabled by the combination of LAN and CD-ROM brought libraries into the domain of database networking. A current reorientation - amongst others - caused by client-server technologies and global information networking, brings libraries into the development of services, aiming at the disclosure of a new, hybrid information environment. The discussion tries to identify the potential scope and characteristics of new library solutions in this new context. A second part introduces the Executive Lounge, a new library solution developed by the library automation team of the University of Ghent, according to the propositions made in the first part.
