Over the past 5 years or so the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) working on behalf of UK Higher Education has sponsored a series of initiatives in the field of electronic information. The main aim of the paper is to illustrate how this has led through successive refinements via the idea of the hybrid library, and through this to the Distributed National Electronic Resource (the DNER). Some links with related work in Australia are mentioned.
