The Current State of Portal Applications in ARL Libraries

Thursday, January 1, 2004

Abstract

Over the past two years, the Association of Research Libraries has polled its members on the current state of portal implementations. The first report, published in June 2002, reported the results of the February 2002 survey of ARL members. That survey sought to identify the state of current or planned research library applications of portals that have certain characteristics or functions. Recognizing that there are many definitions and views of library portals, the ARL survey sought responses from libraries that offered portals that include (1) search engine tools that offer the user the capability to search across multiple sources and integrate the results of those searches, and (2) at least one kind of supporting service for the user (such as requesting retrieval or delivery of non-digital material, online reference help, etc.).
