The Joint Information and Systems Committee (JISC) have commissioned the Library and
Information Statistics Unit (LISU) to conduct a case study of the implementation of the
library-oriented portal known as MetaLib at the University Library at Loughborough. This case
study complements another joint JISC/LISU project which is conducting a national survey of all
Higher Education (HE) and Further Education (FE) establishments to determine the level of
development of library portals. The findings of this survey will inform JISC and the community
on the current situation in the use of library portals.
