Abstract

The Australian Academic Research Library Information Network (AARLIN) aims to provide seamless access to Australian and international information resources for researchers via their personal computers through a personally customisable portal. The project has funding from the Australian Government. AARLIN commenced in the year 2000 with a pilot project and will develop into a fully operational service in Australian universities over the next three years. During the pilot project Ex Libris' Metalib and SFX software have been used to trial the AARLIN portal concept with a group of researchers. The results of a survey of the researchers are presented. It is concluded that the portal has the potential to enhance the work of researchers by improving their success in information searching.
